Graduate Career Guide

UB's Graduate Career Guide, developed to specifically meet the ever-changing needs of today's graduate students, provides advice and resources to prepare students for their first professional or academic position. This guide covers all aspects of the process from the job search, the application process, interviewing, and how to negotiate when a job offer is made.

Students seeking additional or more personalized guidance may request a personal consultation through the Career Services Office.

Policies

Forms

CSE Force Registration Form

Any graduate student who wishes to be enrolled in a course and cannot do so via the HUB must complete the CSE Force Registration Form, which can be obtained from the Graduate Academic Coordinator in 338M Davis Hall. Once you have completed the form and obtained your faculty advisor's signature, please return it to the Graduate Academic Coordinator.

Professional and Student Organizations

We strongly encourage you to join one or more Professional and Student Organizations.  These groups represent the perfect opportunity to meet new friends and build your professional network in a supportive, collegial environment.

And once you've found a club that you like, consider becoming an officer and helping to lead that club.  The leadership skills that you will gain will help you in the long run and are guaranteed to impress future employers.
