Improving Graduate Career Education in the Physical Sciences and Engineering
PhD students at Duke have told us that they want more guidance on how to conduct their professional and career development throughout graduate school. Based on this feedback, the Duke Career Center has created Grad Milestones, a new, structured approach specifically for the needs of Doctoral students. By breaking up the process into smaller, tangible steps, grad students will be able to gain valuable skills needed in graduate school, make more steady progress, and have more clarity on where they're going.
During this interactive session, the Career Center is convening PhD students, staff, and faculty from a range of disciplines to get the first look at Grad Milestones. Attendees will work in collaborative groups to explore the proposed process and provide feedback on how the materials can better meet the needs of students, both during grad school and in preparation for life after grad school. Based on the results of these conversations, the Career Center is planning to launch Grad Milestones in the next academic year for all Doctoral students that we serve.
