Professional & Career Development
Engaging in purposeful professional development and career planning are important parts of the graduate experience and essential to building a fulfilling career across one's lifetime. From day one, it's valuable for all graduate students to self-reflect values and interests, establish connections with academic and professional mentors, and identify meaningful career pathways, as well as the requisite skills and experiences that pave the way for a fruitful job search. The Graduate School's Career and Professional Development services offer a wealth of invaluable resources to graduate students in preparation for a wide range of careers.
We welcome suggestions for workshops from doctoral students, postdocs, faculty/staff colleagues, and departments. Please contact Dr. Yi Hao (email@example.com), Program Director of Career and Professional Development, with questions.
