"I have enjoyed working with the GradFUTURES team at a variety of career/networking events and the new GradFUTURES Mentorship program. The staff are all very kind and driven to help the students achieve their career goals. I'm happy to be a part of it!
Grad school is not easy - don't hesitate to use all the resources at your disposal (i.e., GradFUTURES) to make it to the finish line with a plan for the future! Seriously: you are nearly at the top of your field already - it's ok to be confident in your skills & expertise! Meet people (perhaps virtually) at conferences, talk to professors, work with external collaborators, and build your professional network! I highly recommend getting out of your lab/department and seeing what other groups/jobs/industries are like - you may be surprised by all of the different options that will be open to you after grad school if you keep an open mind and talk to people."
I have participated in the following GradFUTURES Programs: GradFUTURES Forum, GradFUTURES Mentorship Program
Yes: I am open to being contacted by a Princeton Graduate Student for an informational interview!
