What is AURORA?

Aurora is an e-learning platform where graduate students can explore career options and learn job search strategies to secure employment in academia and beyond.

Through the two programs of study in Aurora (Faculty Careers and Professional Careers), students are empowered to make informed decisions about their career path and learn successful job search strategies from other PhDs.

Aurora also hosts a unique video library where students can hear from PhDs working in all sectors: academia, government, higher education administration, industry, and non-profits. Students learn about an interviewee’s specific career, important information about the job search process, and the skills non-academic employers value in job candidates.

Who is AURORA for?

Institutions and professional organizations. Aurora is designed to complement existing on-campus graduate student career supports.

How does AURORA work?

Aurora’s video seminars are available on-demand for the busy graduate student. Students can follow the modules that have been carefully designed and curated by our e-learning specialist, or they can watch seminars when needed.

Video seminars are taught by PhD experts working beyond the professoriate. Topics include career exploration, hiring and negotiating, and job search strategies.

Pre-populated questions, learning prompts, and a downloadable workbook help students apply their new knowledge to ensure a successful job search and career.

Why choose AURORA?

We update new content monthly, providing your students with on-demand current career advice. Our unique platform gives your students access to PhDs in a wide-range of careers, supporting graduate student career exploration and engaged learning.
