The Office of Career Services offers a variety of programs and resources to assist graduate students in developing a comprehensive career management plan. Each semester, events which include workshops and networking opportunities, are arranged to help students connect with corporate representatives and business leaders who will share up-to-date industry information and career management tips and strategies. Career Services also offers on-campus recruiting, company information sessions, a business etiquette dinner, speed networking with several employers and career fairs. Graduate students should check their Handshake account frequently to review up-to-date information on these programs. Please note: pre-registration may be required in order to participate in these valuable opportunities.
In addition to these events, individual strategic career management sessions are available. Leveraging all available resources – beginning early in one's degree program – is a critical component to a successful career management plan. Graduate students are highly encouraged to schedule an initial meeting with the Office of Career Services during their first or second semester in order to fully utilize all available opportunities during their graduate program. These sessions are highly specialized and may cover topics relating to resume and cover letter development, job search strategies, interviewing tips, personal branding and effectively using social media.
