Students, alumni explore grad school with help from Graduate School Series
Graduation may be months away but it’s never too early to explore additional educational opportunities. To help students and alumni who are considering graduate school, the Career Center is hosting the Graduate School Series this fall.
“One of the goals of the 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.”
The series includes five sessions. However, participants can choose to attend an individual session or all five. Held at the Career Center in 110P Student Services Building from noon to 1 p.m., upcoming workshop sessions include the following:
- Admission Secrets – February 10
- Graduate School Overview/What You Should Know Before Graduate School – February 12
- How to Pay for Graduate School – February 17
- Researching & Choosing Grad Schools and Navigating the Application Process – February 19
- Writing a Winning Personal Statement – February 24
- Introduction to the GRE/Test Taking Strategies – February 26
- Developing a Curriculum Vitae (CV) – March 2
“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,” Roach added.
The Career Center assists all Illinois State University students with developing, evaluating, and implementing career decisions.
