Dear Graduate Students,

Welcome to the new Professional Development Corner of GradNews! Each month this space will highlight events, programs, and resources that can help you succeed in graduate school and prepare for future careers.

We invite you to use Graduate Professional Services (GPS) to navigate the wealth of resources on campus that offer graduate student professional development programming.

The GPS Guide outlines professional development competencies addressed in many workshops, seminars, and other events. Our online calendar lists upcoming events, several of which are featured below.

Please feel free to contact us at gradpro@berkeley.edu, should you have ideas on how we can best assist you in your professional development.

—Linda von Hoene, Ph.D.
Assistant Dean for Professional Development, Graduate Division
