Graduate Student Jobs

Northwestern Career Advancement (NCA) offers comprehensive career services to currently enrolled graduate students across all graduate departments as they work towards their post-graduation career objectives. NCA staff are well-informed about the job and internship search process and prepared to assist graduate students with services including but not limited to:

  • Discussing career aspirations, concerns, and challenges
  • Writing resumes, curriculum vitae, and cover letters
  • Networking with alumni and professional contacts
  • Developing and implementing effective job/internship search strategies
  • Improving interviewing and negotiating skills
  • Connecting with employers through career fairs and other events

Graduate students who are seeking part-time work on (or near) campus while enrolled have the most success reaching out to campus departments directly inquire about open positions.  Students can also search CareerCat and QuadJobs for available opportunities, as well as Northwestern Human Resources Careers site.  NCA does not assist students with the search for part-time opportunities.
