Carpe Careers

Twitter: @CarpeCareers

The Carpe Careers Writing group provides an opportunity for GCC members to write optimistic, personal, and actionable blog posts for the Carpe Careers blog, hosted on the Inside Higher Ed website. The target audience for these posts include current PhD students and postdocs, early career professionals with advanced degrees, and our own community of graduate-level career advisors. In addition to writing blog posts, members can also serve as Peer Editors, providing support and feedback to other GCC members as they are creating narratives for their blog posts that align with the positive voice of Carpe Careers. Fundamental to this committee is our outreach on social media to promote the posts, the authors, and the general mission of the GCC, and the Social Media Chair directs our efforts in this medium.

Carpe Careers Committee Members:
Katie Homar (Chair), Tithi Basu Mallik (Social Media Chair)
