Grad Students: Ready for your Job Search?

Career and Job Search Preparation for Graduate Students, CFAN / APS 5201, Spring 2012

Open to all graduate students; emphasis is on job search for non-academic careers.

The course helps students *prepare* for their job search (we recommend they take it a year or full semester before they graduate): employer research, networking, resume and interviewing skills.

One credit, S/N

Open to all University graduate students planning on non-academic careers. One credit, S/N. The purpose of this course is to understand and utilize the synergistic elements and tools of job search preparation and career development: self-awareness, job and employer research, relationship-building, self-marketing and strategic planning.
