“The holistic approach of the grad school process and job searching, and keeping job search in mind from the start has been the best part of Beyond Grad School. I'm in the second year of my Masters, and I wish I had had this info when I started!
- Master's student
“I appreciate how accessible Beyond Grad School is. I finally felt like I wasn't falling behind in 'adulting' or figuring out how to maximize my grad school experience. Very rewarding and stress-reducing."
- Master's student
“I’ve had so much anxiety about this process and this 45 minute training has imparted so much wisdom. I feel like I have the wise parent who has my back. I feel more grounded for the first time in months. The way you translated things into the most digestible words was magic.”
- Master's student

Master's students are worried and overwhelmed


Take out federal student loans. Average debt is $66K.


Lack foundational knowledge about job searching.


Can not confidently identify their value to employers.

Experience depression and anxiety, 5x the rate of the general population.

It's not their education that's failing them

When master’s students struggle on the job search and fail to secure employment in their field of interest, they blame their degree and institution.


But it’s not their education that’s failing them; it’s their lack of job search strategy. They don’t know how to conduct a successful job search and they aren’t finding the support they need.


The reputation of an institution and, in turn, its long-term financial stability are directly connected to alumni career success.



Master’s students need support leveraging their education into career paths they value.


That’s why we partner with 60+ institutions, to provide scalable, research-driven career resources designed for the unique needs and demands of graduate students.
