Exploring Careers for STEM PhDs

A great way to explore different career options is to try out real job tasks, and you can do this while you’re home! Job simulations can help you explore PhD career paths in other sectors, narrow down options, and make informed career choices. The job sims are vetted by professionals with career expertise – the projects are true-to-task.
