Graduate Student Orientation 2011: Professional Development


Published on

Graduate students should be engaged in their work – that means finding a research idea that they find really interesting and fun. Students should be self-directed – that means taking charge of their training, and seeking out opportunities rather than waiting to be directed to opportunities. Graduate students are not alone in their endeavor – that means they have the support of the mentors, departments, colleges and graduate school to support their training. All of these spheres of support share the common goal of preparing the student for the best placement possible, and putting us all in a position to brag about the student’s success. The presentation then covered the main components of the professional development program designed to help students become professionally prepared, covering the resources for the four spires of professional development: research, teaching, career and ethics; the checklist of activities that they should pursue throughout their training; and the roadmap to identifying transferrable skills.
