Career Resources for Graduate Students

In addition to Tyler's Career Resources page and Resume Guide, Temple's Career Center has a Career Coach dedicated to graduate students:

Mark Kaloko, Senior Career Coach

Additionally, Temple subscribes to The Versatile PhD, an online community helping graduate students identify, prepare for, and succeed in non-academic careers. If you have no idea where to land after grad school, sometimes self-assessments can help you explore what's out there and how it fits with you. There's a great free tool for this: Imagine PhD. It's NOT just for PhDs, and can help guide you to careers you might not have thought of. Don't be turned off by the fact that it was designed for "Humanities and Social Sciences"--it works for art and design, too. Then you can use the Mind Career Exploration Map, developed for grad students at UCSF, to help you figure out where to go.
