Life After Graduate School Seminar | I Did Not See That Coming: My Career as a Random Walk

Dr. Joseph Reid (Physics Alum)
Friday, April 16, 2021
12:00-1:00 PM
Your graduate degree may seem your greatest achievement. Congratulations. But now may be the time for something totally different. That basically describes my 46-year succession of careers: physics professor, management consultant, statistical taxation consultant, bank operations consultant, engineering information systems manager, security systems developer, public health official, entrepreneur, and corporate executive. Each transition got easier, less threatening, and more rewarding. That seemingly divergent list of positions grew directly out of my physics graduate school experience. Physics is everywhere and a Michigan Ph.D. in physics will open many doors you did not know were there. But you may have a lot of post-doctoral learning to do. Much of that learning will be about yourself. Perhaps I can be of assistance.
