Doctoral Students

Welcome to the Doctoral Students Community

Welcome to the Doctoral Students career community! Diligent researching, flexibility, organization, and attention to detail are a few of the many skills and strengths that you have developed through your doctoral studies that are in high demand across many industries. The Office of Career Exploration and Success is committed to assisting doctoral students preparing for productive and meaningful careers. We recognize that there are needs unique to this career community.

The doctoral student community assists students with articulating their transferable skills and experiences. This can occur through developing an effective Curriculum Vitae (CV) and resumes, enhancing their networking skills with alumni and industry connections, and navigating the job search process by translating their knowledge from their studies into the world of work.

Through this community, you will find industry resources, career advice, job/internship and networking opportunities, workshops, events, and advisors to help you strategize a plan to achieve your post-graduation goals.
