Welcome back, ​grad ​students! We hope everyone had a wonderful and exciting break. As you settle into Winter Quarter, it is never too late to start thinking about the summer and beyond. Whether you're graduating this year or looking for a summer internship, it is advisable to start preparing your job application materials so you can put your best foot forward. This begins by creating an impactful resume, engaging LinkedIn profile, and yes, you'll most likely need a strong cover letter, too! The more targeted and precise they become the better you get to represent yourself in the marketplace.

We at Graduate Student Career Services are here to help you do precisely that! Please stop by during our office hours or email us for an appointment. We can also help in navigating our job search website - Handshake - and guide you to other resources to support your career and professional development needs.

We are located in the Graduate Student Resource Center, Student Resource Building (SRB) 1216, and you can learn more about the services we offer here.
