Webinar Review: Taking Next Steps for Graduate School

Congratulations on getting into graduate school! Now it is time to choose the best school for you. Health Career Connection and My Health Career Navigator Founder, Jeff Oxendine, shares the next steps you should take after successfully getting into graduate school.


What Do You Value in a Graduate School?

Before committing significant time and money to graduate school, it is important to have a clear sense of what the graduate school offers and how does it fit with your vision and goals? Take a look at what alumni from your graduate school are doing right now. Does the graduate school offer resources to help position you to where you want to go? Of course, your career goals might change in the future, but having a plan in the beginning of your graduate school journey is much better than "winging" it.

Do You "Fit" with the Graduate School?

As you narrow down your choices for graduate school, below are key decision factors Jeff shared during his webinar:

Are you deciding between a large state school or a small private school? Do you believe in the school's mission? Which school is offering the best financial package? Use these questions to help make the best decision for you.

What Process Will You Use To Decide?

Graduate school is a big step so you want to get advice from real people. Talk to your career office in your undergraduate college and ask if they can connect you to alumni who have went to the graduate school you are considering. Talk to future employers about the reputation of the graduate school. Ask tough questions.
