A one-on-one meeting at a myCHOICE alumni event led to my current employer reaching out to me about open positions, the UChicagoGRAD office helped me with interview prep and negotiation strategies once I received an offer. They helped at every stage of the process!!

I really appreciated the time UChicagoGRAD took to go over my CV before I went on the job market- I felt like the final version was much more polished, and may have helped my application stand out among the crowd. I found the one-week summer application bootcamp/workshop extremely helpful, in that it got me working on all my documents before job season started, and helped steer me away from a number of common mistakes.
