CEM Alumni Career Series

Is graduation on the horizon? Where will your degree take you? Learn more about diverse career paths in the STEM disciplines from Ohio State alumni working in industry, national labs, government research, science policy and other career paths. Each semester, Ohio State alumni will share their career-related experiences and provide you with tips and advice on landing that perfect job.

The goal of the Alumni Career Series is to broaden the student body’s understanding of diverse career paths, provide students and alumni valuable opportunities to network, and maintain strong relationships with our alumni.

All seminars take place during the CME Seminar on Thursdays, from 11:30am-12:30pm, in the Physics Research Building’s Smith Seminar Room. An informal reception preceeds the event. If you would like to arrange a meeting with the speaker or attend the student luncheon, please email Rachel Page or Alison Scott.
