Preparing for the Job Market

During your time at Brown, take advantage of resources and services at the CareerLAB. You can schedule individual, confidential counseling sessions; drop in for quick questions on resume or CV critiques; and attend programs and workshops tailored to specific types of job searches.

An online service, The Versatile PhD, provides information about career paths as well as peer and professional support for non-academic career options. Access to this subscription-based resource is provided by the CareerLAB and the Graduate School. The site is particularly suited for graduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences who are considering careers outside of academia.
