UChicagoGRAD and Career Advancement both serve to promote graduate students and alumni in their academic and post-graduation careers. UChicagoGRAD offers a variety of career development services such as advice on writing a cover letter, negotiating a salary, and interviewing techniques. Josephine Cai is the main PSD contact; she is always happy to meet with students from Statistics. Students can schedule one-on-one meetings with Josephine through GRAD Gargoyle, as well as search the GRAD Gargoyle jobs board, submit job documents, integrate LinkedIn accounts, and more.
Career Advancement similarly provides a number of resources for students and alumni seeking to further their careers, the most important of which is UChicago Handshake, the university's new hub for job and internship listings, career fair registration, scheduling information sessions, and more. Users can tailor their Handshake profile to alert them to opportunities in certain fields, in certain locales, etc.
Some employers contact our department or individual faculty members directly; we pass such leads on to the StatJobs listhost. The archive includes all past listings.
To supplement UChicago’s resources, below is a list of other job databases that are of interest to our graduates. There is some overlap between categories.
Part-time and summer work

employment after graduation. For part-time or summer
