"Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you are right."- Henry Ford
The Office of Career Services is here to support you throughout your graduate career, whether you are considering a career inside or outside the university, or both. Careers inside the university include positions as faculty, administrators, or researchers. Outside of the university, you may be looking to work as a researcher in industry or in government, as a consultant, writer/editor, or any number of options.
Having developed the ability to synthesize great amounts of information and develop your thoughts and arguments into a written document, your dissertation, is valued in many different professions. Your stand-up presentation skills as a teaching assistant and presenter at conferences and within your departments are strongly desired in all professions. Learning the crucial components of career development and self-management now, while you are in graduate school, will help ensure a smooth transition later, when you are ready to launch into a meaningful career. Understanding and applying the principles of career management will help you progress in your career and provide you with greater satisfaction and effectiveness as you grow professionally.
You can contact me, Daisy Osborn (firstname.lastname@example.org), to schedule a 30-minute appointment. I wish you much success as you pursue your graduate degree at FSU.
