"Graduate school is such an amazing experience – taking classes without thinking, too much, about grades is refreshing; doing research is exciting and rewarding, when the long-coveted breakthrough finally happens; and having diverse experiences is so, truly, educational. To the Princeton graduate students: please take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities on campus and, specifically, the programs offered by the GradFUTURES Professional Development team. One day, in the not-so-distant future, you will be glad you learned about topics such as communication, leadership, and career management. The grad school experience would not be full, really, without this exposure.
As the Director of Graduate Studies of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE), I know that students have truly enjoyed the pre-matriculation internship program the GradFUTURES Office of Professional Development sponsors for incoming CBE graduate students at Millipore Sigma. During these internships students have an opportunity to collaborate with researchers across the US, as well as around the world, learn from their mentors, establish industry connections, and become familiar with a wide range of methods."
