A Big Decision: Grad School or Job?

Having trouble deciding which way to go next? Here are some suggestions to help you make your decision.
  • Talk with English faculty members. They will be your most important resource in making this decision.
  • Talk to English Grad Students. Learn about the programs they are in and try to imagine yourself in them.
  • Meet with a Career Development Counselor. Make an appointment with a counselor to discuss ideas for your future. Find out more about the NU Career Development office and the events they have planned here 
  • Consider your career options. It's possible that you don't need a graduate degree as a credential for the kind of work you want to do.
