Career and Professional Development

  • Overview

    You are more than a graduate student. After completing your degree, you must be prepared to confidently venture into competitive academic programs or professional work environments. Join us for our Professional Wednesday career and professional development series. 

    PWS presentations enhance students’ professional toolkits. Sessions are delivered to reach both face-to-face and online audiences; all sessions are recorded and posted on The Graduate School’s Career & Professional Development webpage. You also have the option to attend live sessions so you can network and ask individual questions.
