Career Exploration

While many students spend the first year of their graduate studies focused only on their studies, considering all career paths early can help students evaluate their skills to plan their professional development strategically. Northwestern has ample opportunities to help students explore career options from the time they begin at Northwestern. Students may:

Use TGS Resources for New Students.

Schedule an appointment with a career counselor at NCA through CareerCat.

Attend NU Club Events.

Read NCA List of External Career Resources.

Attend Various Career Panels and Speakers through TGS.
