Thank you to everyone who has supported Beyond Academia’s crowdfunding campaign. As a result of this campaign, we will be able to bring 3 non-local speakers to our 2018 BA Conference to better serve the PhD community at Berkeley!

We'll be reaching out to you regarding fulfillment of perks. If you'd like to stay in touch and find out what we're up to, you can find us on Twitter (@beyondacademia), Facebook (@beyondacademiaberkeley), LinkedIn, and on our website.


Thank you to all of our supporters!

Beyond Academia is always looking for new ways to support graduate students and postdocs at Berkeley in their career aspirations. Yesterday, we held our first-ever Careers Reception. At this recruiting event, we connected over 130 graduate students and postdocs with companies looking to hire.

Thanks for your support of our organization, and your contributions towards improving the quality of our programming.

Thanks so much for BA onto BA 2018!

The 5th Annual Beyond Academia Conference, held earlier this month on March 2nd and 3rd, was immensely successful. Over 300 PhD students and postdocs were in attendance to gain insight about numerous career paths from over 100 speakers.

Check out conference photos and catch some insights from attendees on Twitter:

We need your help to continue educating PhDs about ALL of their post-graduate career options. Please consider a gift today, and share our message with your friends and colleagues.

Thank you for your support!
