Career Outcomes: Data and Stories

We routinely post tips from alumni, postdocs and current students to increase the transparency of the process of career navigation. We accomplish this through encouraging reflection, co-authoring interviews, and encouraging them to share their personal stories. We also help participants navigate the data and use their research skills to connect with employers and professionals in the sector of interest.

Leading the way in transparency of career outcomes

The Graduate School has led the way in data transparency of doctoral career outcomes in a public dashboard where you can click on your discipline or field of study to see the statistical breakdown of where Ph.D. graduates are employed. We encourage its use to identify names of  employers in industry, government, and non-profits of interest. Cornell postdoctoral career outcomes are also tracked.
