Career Services

Graduate studies require a significant financial investment as well as your time and energy. If the job market in your field is very competitive, you need a support system to coach you through the job search process and help you explore alternatives. The career services office associated with your program should be well-equipped to assist you in your job search. These questions can help you assess the career services office you will be using:

  • What type of employment assistance is provided by the program or the university as a whole?
  • How familiar is the office with current trends in the field you will be working in?
  • Are these services only available to current students, or are alumni eligible as well?
  • With which companies or organizations do domestic and international graduates tend to find employment?
