Graduate Career Groups

The Graduate Center hosts a series of graduate student career support groups to help you learn about diverse careers, create your professional LinkedIn profile and elevator pitch, and build confidence in your ability to create and maintain professional connections. The groups comprise a a supportive, inclusive community of peers with career staff guidance.

We expect that participants will:

  • Develop a career preparation plan and conduct at least one informational interview
  • Attend weekly one-hour group meetings to discuss networking progress, identify new connections, and plan strategic career goals.

Some groups are tailored for specific students, but all groups are open to everyone.
