The nobility of the teaching profession—and the prestige associated with being a professor—made it a very attractive way to make a living.

Higher Education offers many diverse employment opportunities for people with STEM degrees!
In this webinar, you'll meet three scientists who chose different career paths—after receiving their PhD in STEM.
