The Graduate Center Supports Your Career Development

A graduate degree can help propel you into many diverse career trajectories! Whether you know exactly where you plan to go after you get your degree, or whether you’re still figuring it out, we at the Graduate Center are here to help.

The Graduate Center supports graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in all stages of career development. Think of us as a supplement to the training you are receiving in your academic degree programs. We can help you:

  • research and identify diverse careers
  • develop effective job search strategies
  • create professional connections and develop your LinkedIn profile
  • review job application materials such as CVs, resumes, statements, and cover letters
  • prepare for interviews including mock interviews
  • negotiate your best offer
