When students graduate from Pardee RAND they pursue a wide variety of careers. Our Career Development staff coaches and advises students during their time on campus and assists alumni on their career paths as well. We also encourage alumni to return to campus and share their experiences with current students.
Pardee RAND has a dedicated Career Development office that educates Pardee RAND students throughout their time with us on the wide variety of career opportunities open to them as they graduate. Additionally, Career Development provides support through resume reviews and supports students in their job search, with interviewing and job market talk preparation, and assistance in negotiating final offers.
We host a variety of events and information sessions throughout the year:

Racial, ethnic, and gender disparities in military career success and representation are a long-standing problem. To help inform efforts to address this, David Schulker (cohort '07) created the Military Demographic Equity Machine tool.
Bonnie Triezenberg (cohort '14) and colleagues use game theoretical models to focus on the dynamics of space competition. They describe strategic interaction patterns, where possible; the conditions that give rise to them; and how investments shape those conditions.
