What happens after graduation? The answers are incredibly varied for NWREC graduates. To give current students, staff, and faculty a better idea of what career options are available, we have invited NWREC alumni to share their experiences after graduation and to talk about their current positions. The talks will be approximately monthly, and the series will continue throughout the academic year.
