You've heard about careers in technology transfer, science policy, consulting, and academia, but have you ever wondered what else is out there? This panel will explore careers you might never have considered including careers in the food industry, sales, defense contracting, zoological parks, and museum conservation. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how research skills can be put to use in different professional settings. This event is sponsored by FELCOM's Career Development Subcommittee.
