UCSD Career Center
Open all summer to meet the career needs of all current UCSD graduate students

With the current state of the economy, going “On the Market” is tougher than ever, so understanding the true breadth of career/job options, honing your Résumé, CV, application/cover letter, or just discussing interview tips and strategies can play a vital role in finding opportunities, securing an interview, and receiving an offer.

A master’s and Ph.D. students advisor is available by appointment for confidential discussion of all issues related to career planning and professional development for academic careers and job pursuits beyond academia. The following services are conducted by appointment:

Critiques of CVs, resumes, cover letters, and other credentials and job search materials

Assistance with academic and careers beyond academia decision-making, planning, job searching, and utilizing resources

Mock interviews and interviewing tips and strategies

Guidance connecting with UC San Diego alumni and other professionals

Administration of self-assessment instruments


All UC San Diego Ph.D. and Master’s students who are currently enrolled, conducting research off-grounds, or newly graduated are eligible for advising services

Graduate students who have not paid UC San Diego registration fees and are only working on a thesis and are not officially on leave, may access the services at the Career Services Center. These students must provide a signed memo from their advisor verifying their status. Students on leave of absence or withdrawn receiving a 100% refund are not eligible to access services at the Career Services Center.

From that point on, as alumni, they may consult Alumni Career Plus.
