Muscle Health Research Centre hosts Career Day, Feb. 22

Graduate students in York University’s School of Kinesiology and Health Science in the Faculty of Health are invited to a Career Day on Feb. 22 hosted by the Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC).

The event will feature eight guest speakers from industry, academia and a number of other fields who have gone through graduate school in a science- or biology-related field and moved on to a diverse range of careers.

Guest speakers will be present for a morning of short talks describing their academic and career path, their current position, along with their roles/responsibilities. Additionally, they will offer their insights on valuable skills and tips for graduate students looking to enter the workforce.

The event is an important educational resource for graduate students who are interested in exploring career options outside the traditional academia path, or hearing first-hand accounts and experiences from former biology and science graduate students who have pursued careers related and unrelated to academia.

Career Day runs from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Life Science Building, 101 and 103 at the Keele Campus. The cost is $15 for all attendees, and payment is made on site and in cash only the day of the event. The fee includes breakfast, morning refreshments and a catered lunch.

Career Day ran previously in 2014 and 2017.
