Improving career-transition readiness using career clinics: Opinion


Professional and career development training programs should use career clinics to help graduate students and postdocs to develop job application materials, writes James Gould. Gould provides suggestions for how these targeted monthly career-transition training sessions could be designed, such as starting sessions with a self-identification of difficulties or struggles that a facilitator could address and encouraging trainees to submit their materials for critique before the session. Gould writes that these career clinics can help participants develop a strategy for honing their documents, build comradery with others with the same concerns and challenges, and gain a better understanding of the purpose of some application package components.
