The idea for this page began with an eye to helping students start to think about important issues that may not already be covered in graduate program curricula. That's why we've chosen to focus here on:
- Job Market: Realities & Opportunities including acknowledging the realities of Precarity in the University Labour Market, Career Coaching & Advice, Networking & Interviewing for Jobs, and Writing Resumes and (versus) CVs
- Professional Development Strategies in the context of your studies and beyond/ alongside your studies
- Writing Tips for getting through the dissertation, but also advice on writing Peer Reviews and Comps
- and links for resources connected to Grad Student Wellness
Although this is by no means an exhaustive guide, we hope that current and potential grad students -- as well as faculty and grad program advisors -- will find the resources collected here helpful. Grad students and faculty may also be interested in perusing the collection of career trajectories that anthropologists have pursued in applied contexts: Applying an anthropological perspective outside of university.
