Career Services is Here to Help

Career Services offers assistance throughout your graduate career, whether you are considering a career inside or outside the academy, or both. Careers inside the academy may include positions as faculty members, administrators or researchers. Outside of the academy, opportunities may include research in industry or in government, nonprofit, consulting and many other career fields.

We are available to help you assess, explore and pursue the options that might be an ideal fit for you and to assist you in developing strategies for launching your career. Schedule a 30-minute individual appointment with Susanne Killian, senior associate director of graduate student career development.
