What others have said about us

how we help institutional partners

Our platforms are the only online professional development training resource for graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and PhDs that helps them successfully transition into academic or nonacademic career paths. These research-driven platforms are informed by nearly a decade of experience supporting graduate students to launch new careers with their skills and training.

prepare more students

The Center's two platforms provide a scalable solution for reaching today's busy graduate students. Whether they are part-time, full-time, or attending their program online, students have access to on-demand, 24/7 career support when and where they need it.

maximize 1:1 advising

Curriculum for Master's students and PhDs is designed to complement on campus resources and 1:1 career advising. Assign a career module, then meet with your student so you can both make the most out of your appointment!

immediate implementation

Beyond the Professoriate and Beyond Grad School provide resources to support career center staff. Self paced modules mean staff can easily direct students to ready-made resources in the program.

increase student satisfaction

Research shows career development opportunities are critical to student satisfaction and engagement. Give your students the most up-to-date career resources available for graduate students.

supporting all graduate students

Master’s students and doctoral students have unique career needs. Through our research, we’ve developed and designed two platforms to support institutional partners in preparing these unique student bodies.

Beyond Graduate School

for master's

Beyond Graduate School is a one-of-a-kind, training platform that helps master’s students make the most out of their investment and build their careers.

From video lessons on career exploration, to writing application materials, to interviewing and negotiating for that next career step — our platform helps master’s students to degree completion and through each stage of their job search.

Beyond the Professoriate

for phds

Beyond the Professoriate is a digital platform where doctoral students and PhDs can explore career options and learn job search strategies to secure employment in academia and beyond.


Through two programs of study (Faculty Careers and Professional Careers), students are empowered to make informed decisions about their career path and learn successful job search strategies from other PhDs.
