Career Development Series for Graduate Students
Students with graduate degrees later become leaders throughout society – across our nation’s campuses, but also in local/state/federal governance, diplomacy, non-profit organizations, research-focused organizations, and other public service arenas, as well as business and other professional fields. But exploring these different career pathways is daunting, for students who have come up through academic ranks.
The Graduate School would like to partner with the Career Center to pilot a Graduate Career Development series of workshops for graduate students exploring non-academic career pathways. The series would bring expert speakers, trainers, and workshop leaders to campus three times per semester, next year, to help students find and prepare for the next phase of their careers as engaged citizens of their communities, from the local to the global level. It will also help to connect students to internship and project-management experiences that both enhance their academic pursuits and prepare them to be competitive for those future positions.
