What is the Graduate Career Consortium (GCC)?
The Graduate Career Consortium (GCC) is a professional association of individuals who work at research universities, medical centers, and research oriented government and non-profit organizations providing professional and career development for the doctoral candidates (PhDs) and postdoctoral scholars at their institutions.
What does it cost to join?
At the June 2014 annual business meeting, the membership voted to assess individual members $100.00 annually. Membership dues are assessed at the beginning of each fiscal year (August). There is no pro-rated membership if you join midway through the fiscal year.
Can dues be refunded or transferred to another individual?
There will be no refunds granted on annual membership dues. Membership may not be transferred to another individual at your institution or another institution. For questions, please contact email@example.com.
What topics are covered in the online forum discussions?
The online forum is available to all full members for communication with members around topics such as best practices, professional and career program ideas, benchmarking among peer institutions, job sharing, as well as current articles and information sharing in the field.
How are resources shared and how do members access them?
Full members have access to resources and information from past meetings and conference as well as forums through the member’s only portal of the website. When you pay dues, you will be given an individual username and password for the member’s only information.
I’m a graduate student. How do I get involved?
As a graduate student, you are currently not eligible to join the GCC. Please check with your university’s career center or graduate school to see if their staff members are members of the GCC. Working through your career center will give you exposure to the kind of work we do.
