CareerLAB offers an array of programs and services for doctoral students interested in pursuing either academic careers or alternative careers in business, government, non-profits, communications, policy, research, etc. 

You'll want to work with your faculty advisor on your career plans; CareerLAB advisors also can assist you in individual appointments or walk-ins with career exploration as well as support for the job search, including CVs and cover letters, effective interviewing, and job negotiation. We offer the Academic Job Search Series, the Non-Academic Job Search Series, and graduate alumni career programs.

All graduate students exploring careers outside academia will want to become regular readers of The Versatile PhD. This unique resource, free to Brown students, showcases career options, highlights career paths, and provides peer and professional support for non-academic career options in STEM fields and Humanities/Social Sciences.
