The Career Exploration Group provides a collaborative environment for graduate students and postdocs who want to learn more about their career options. Participants will work with a career advisor through a guided process of discovery to help them identify and evaluate career paths that fit their skills, interests, and values. The group is a unique opportunity to share and learn about exploring careers through discussion and open dialogue with peers.
(Please note that this is not a job search group. We will not be workshopping application documents or discussing in detail the process of searching for a job. Students ready to apply to jobs may benefit more from the Job Search Support Group or scheduling an individual advising appointment at grad.illinois.edu/careers/advising)
Participants commit to meeting once a week for 3 weeks, with 1 - 1.5 hours/week of additional work in between sessions. Registration is required.
