Imagine PhD job families
The Graduate College is excited to announce that ImaginePhD—the free, online career exploration and planning tool for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral scholars in the humanities and social sciences is now available for use. The Graduate College was an early supporter and sponsor for ImaginePhD.

ImaginePhD users are able to:

  • assess their career-related skills, interests, and values
  • explore careers paths appropriate to their disciplines
  • map out steps for degree completion alongside career and professional development

Developed by experts from over 50 universities, ImaginePhD offers a unique platform that teaches PhDs about popular job sectors, search strategies, and how to transfer skills across settings. A similar Graduate Career Consortium tool targeting STEM graduate students currently has over 100,000 users.
