The fall marks a crossroads for many graduate students. Whether you are seeking a career in academia or somewhere else, ask yourself these questions: “What is it that you want? When you look back on your life in fifty years, what do you want to see?” Trust yourself to find the path that is right for you. Take advantage of campus resources for exploring career options. I encourage graduate students to consider multiple career paths. At the Graduate School, we partner with Career Services to bring a multitude of workshops throughout the fall, catering to both academic and nonacademic career paths.
