Title: Alternative Career Path Panel Discussion
Abstract: A frequent career path in physics and astronomy is to obtain one's undergraduate degree, complete a program of Ph. D. research, pursue further research in postdoctoral work, and then on to a faculty position at a college or university. However, this is not the only path available in academia, as other career paths include involving industry and government. We present a discussion by four people who have experiences or interests in career paths other than the one frequently pursued, described above. Though the panelists will be prepared to speak concerning a few topics - writing a resume, making contacts, and finding places to apply - the discussion will mostly be driven by questions from the audience. Please come prepared with questions!
