Assess and Investigate.

Academic success doesn't always add up to professional success. Graduate school can be a launching point for a satisfying and rewarding career, but only if you're willing to plan ahead and take control of your professional identity. In other words, figure out where you are, where you want to go, and what it will take to get there. 

Profound changes in the workplace over the course of the past ten years require us to look at career preparation differently. Strategic planning is essential for success in today’s flexible market, and that means thinking about your future career early and often. Now is the time to engage.

Graduate Career Services has the knowledge and expertise to help you learn how to leverage your network and make the most of professional development opportunities while you're working on your degree. We’ll help you build skills now that can help you throughout your career. Come see us. Email gradcareers@nd.edu to set up an individual appointment.
