The summer between years in graduate school is a critical time for students to focus on their career prospects and future goals. However, transitioning from an academic environment to the job market can be challenging and require a different approach.
In this blog post and video, I talk with Dave, a graduate student that raises two questions: how do I get a job? And, how do I find out what I want to do?
