Are you interested in or considering graduate school? The Career Center is hosting the Graduate School Series to assist students and alumni who are considering or planning on attending graduate school.
The workshops, held every Wednesday from August 26 to September 30, assist students with the admission application and testing process. The Graduate School Series provides insight into what one should consider when looking into graduate school, as well as tips for taking the GRE (Graduate Record Exam). Workshop sessions include:
• 8/26 Considering and Financing Graduate School
• 9/2 Choosing the Right Grad School and Application Process
• 9/9 Introduction to the GRE
• 9/23 CV/Resumes, Cover Letters, and Letters of Recommendation
• 9/30 Kaplan’s Personal Statement Secrets
The sessions are held at the Career Center in 110P Student Services Building. Participants can choose to attend an individual session or all of five.
“One of the goals of Illinois State’s Career Center is to assist students with their career and educational goals,” said Maureen Roach, Career Center senior assistant director. “The Graduate School Series educates students about graduate school, so they have what they need to make a well-informed decision about additional learning and if graduate school is for them,” said Roach, who added students can also visit the Career Center for additional advice and support from a professional career advisor anytime during their decision process.
“After all, when students consider graduate school they’re not just making an educational choice, they’re making a significant investment in their future; and we’re here to help,” said Roach.
