Many job possibilities exist for graduate students, because employers need the skills obtained in thesis work. Identify the skills you have developed, and research fields and positions that would benefit from your skill set. 

Find a Job in Industry

To find out more about jobs in industry, use your networking skills and contact Dartmouth alumni. By networking, you can gather information on what people do in their professions, discover what corporate culture is like, and decide if it is the right career choice for you.

If you choose to pursue an industry position, you need to clearly show employers you have the interest and experience. The best way to show interest is to get involved in business related workshops, organizations, or classes.
