The Office of Career Planning and Professional Development’s Career Planning Guide provides answers to some of the most common questions asked in our office: How do I figure out what to do with my degree? What should a CV look like? What can I expect in an interview?
This guide was designed to be a helpful starting point in thinking about career options and job search steps. It is meant to be a conversation starter, not an end point, one that gives you enough knowledge to know what to do next and where to seek more help.
All the sections in this guide—self-assessment, job searches, networking, applications, and interviews—are topics you can address in more depth through our Office of Career Planning and Professional Development. Our office offers numerous additional services and resources, such as:
- Career advisers, who meet one-on-one to answer questions, discuss self-assessment and career planning, review application materials, and more;
- Writing services, including graduate student consultants who provide one-on-one peer feedback for writing questions and documents;
- Events and workshops, where you can hear from and network with professionals and alumni across a multitude of fields and get hands-on tips and feedback regarding your career materials and questions; and
- Digital resources, including past webinars, informative blog posts and articles, alumni interview podcasts, and more.
