In addition, the Career Center offers several graduate-level workshops throughout the year on topics such as careers outside academia, developing fellowship proposals, and writing CVs. We also organize mock interviews with members of the Graduate Studies Advisory Board. The Arts & Sciences Graduate Assistant in charge of graduate programming can be reached at [[csga04]].

For advice about careers in academia, graduate students are encouraged to consult with faculty in their departments.
