Carpe Careers

The Carpe Careers blog hosted on the Inside Higher Ed website is a weekly advice column for graduate students, postdocs, and early career professionals with advanced degrees who are embarking on their professional and career journeys. Each post is written by a member of the GCC, and provides optimistic, personal, and actionable advice on leveraging graduate school experiences in the world of work. There are over 80 GCC members involved in the Carpe Careers writing group, and each year up to 30 GCC members share their career insights and perspectives.
