Career Guide Introduction

The following pages were created to assist UT Liberal Arts graduate students in their exploration of non-academic career options. For many graduate students, an academic career has been the goal for most or all of of the time spent in graduate school. If your career plans change for some reason, you may feel ill-equipped to launch a non-academic job search because you simply don't know anything about alternative careers. These guides are meant to serve as introductions to the basics of careers in which post-academics have found success. Each guide includes print and web resources to help you continue your exploration beyond this foundation.
