The Career Success website brings together tools and resources to help graduate students, post-docs and faculty mentors ensure our students graduate prepared for their future endeavors.

The Graduate School at Michigan State University strives to ensure that graduate students are suitably prepared for their future careers when they leave this campus. Whether their chosen path leads them into further studies, a faculty position in academia, or a research or an industry position, the Graduate School offers many programs to help ensure they develop the skills that their future employers seek.

The Career Success website (www.careersuccess.msu.edu) is the gateway to the resources, programs, events and planning tools for graduate students, post-docs and faculty mentors. Using a free account on this website allows users to customize a career plan, save resources for future reference, access lists of workshops and training events, and develop individual development plans to ensure they are ready for whatever their future careers may need. Users can also create professional portfolios to document their skills.

The website allows users to evaluate their existing skills and identity areas for improvement. The site also curates resources and tools in many areas, including graduate life and wellness, teaching, career services, and conflict resolution.

These tools stem from the programs offered by the Graduate School. If you would like more information on how you can support the efforts of the Graduate School and its investment in programs for students, please see our Support Graduate Students section.
