Resources for Departments

Our research informed programming supports grad students, postdocs, PhDs, and faculty interested in non-faculty careers.

Free Monthly Webinars

In a recent survey, we learned that 67% of graduate students and PhDs feel they lack the professional development they need for non-academic jobs.

Our free monthly webinars are designed to help students learn proven job search strategies. These workshops are led by Dr. Maren Wood, and on occasion, include guest presenters.   

In 2020, 15,000 PhDs from over 300 universities attended our free programming. Webinars are appropriate for graduate students and PhDs from all academic disciplines.

Departments are welcome to share our free events with students and postdocs. To receive marketing materials, please email
