The BGS Office coordinates a variety of career counseling opportunities for students, often in cooperation with other offices, particularly Career Services, Postdoctoral Programs, and the Deputy Provost’s Office of Graduate Studies. Events include: an annual biomedical career fair, a “faculty conversations” series, and a science jobs listserve, as well as individual career counseling. Most graduate groups arrange career information sessions for students as well.
Alumni Graduate group coordinators and BGS staff track alumni activity using a central database, Career Tracker. Career Tracker allows groups to send automated emails to alumni as a means to stay in contact. BGS alumni are encouraged to sign up with the Penn’s Alumni Network, so that current students may contact them for career-related information.
