How to Sell Your TA Skills in the Non-Academic Job Market

October 30, 11.30am-1.00pm, Alumni Gallery, Young Library, University of Kentucky

Please join us for a workshop led by Ashley Sorrell from CELT. As a graduate teaching assistant, you have mastered a number of dynamic skills that have made you an effective classroom instructor. But what you may not realize is that the same skills you have cultivated as a teaching assistant are transferrable to careers outside of academia. In this interactive workshop, we will identify specific transferable skills you have developed as a teaching assistant and discuss how you can best market these skills for post-academic careers.

Lunch will be provided by The Graduate School’s Office of Professional Development. Please RSVP with Catherine Brereton (
