The College of Arts and Humanities hosts a number of professional development events to assist graduate students who want to learn more about the job market – both academic and non-academic – and who seek to develop useful job search skills. You will find information here about our Professional Pathways series geared toward ARHU grad students, which includes lectures, workshops, and networking opportunities. We also keep an updated list of campus-wide events hosted by the Career Center and the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center, and send out a monthly listing by email, the Pathways Digest (monthly editions are also archived below). Some past events include a panel discussion and interactive advising session with ARHU graduate student alums now established in various professions, an industry networking series for archives and museum work, a resume clinic, a mock interview workshop for PhD students on the academic market, and a range of pedagogical skill development workshops hosted by the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center (TLTC). The Graduate School also hosts events geared toward professionalization, which can be viewed on the Graduate School events calendar.
On these pages you will also find an array of job search resources, such as databases of job listings; career search guides; tips for job seekers in fields such as government, academic administration, agencies and non-profits, and community colleges; and networking skill development tips.
Enjoy, let us know if we have left something out that you would like to see here, and remember to keep your eye on the Professional Pathways page for exciting, upcoming events that will help you to hone your skills and plan for a successful future!
