Welcome to the Graduate Career Consortium

The Graduate Career Consortium, a national organization comprised of professionals at research universities and medical schools in the U.S. and Canada serving Ph.D. students and post-doctoral scholars, incorporated in 2014 and became an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2015. The first GCC Executive Board consisting of four officers was elected in January 2014. The GCC is a volunteer run organization and has grown tremendously over the past three years. In 2017, the GCC reached 364 individual members representing 175 institutions. The organization operated unofficially from 1987 to 2013 through meetings at members’ institutions to share best practices and national trends, as well as to engage with other university PhD career advisors. Now the GCC hosts regional meetings and one national conference annually with over 200 members attending.

We have many plans and projects in the pipeline and we hope you will consider joining us in the efforts to increase awareness of and support for the professional and career development of our graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
