The Graduate Student Government and the Graduate School offer professional development workshop

On December 8, over 35 graduate students gathered in the Friend Center to explore professional development opportunities available to them at Princeton. The pilot workshop was initiated by the Graduate Student Government and developed with support from the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School.  The workshop was designed to help graduate students from all disciplines understand how Princeton’s professional development resources will help prepare them and build skills for the next step in their careers.   The workshop included presentations from the Writing Center, The Keller Center for Entrepreneurship, The McGraw Center on Teaching and Learning and the Office of Career Services.

Following introductory remarks by Amy Pszcolkowski, assistant dean for professional development, graduate students self-selected into discussion sessions focused on three potential career tracks: academic, non-academic, and entrepreneurial. 

The event concluded with a networking reception where graduate students had an opportunity to mingle with graduate students who serve in leadership roles in each of the partnering offices.
