UCalgary Career Services: In the Works

Dec 13, 2021

Does attending post-secondary count as a career move? We think so — additional education shapes your career in many ways and can open up more options for you in the future. Grad school is one of those options — it can lead to higher salaries, advanced roles and may even be required for positions in research and academia.

We talk to Mehnaz Rafi, a UCalgary alumna and current researcher at the Haskayne School of Business, focusing on organizational behaviour. She tells us about what grad student life was like, what skills you should develop for grad school and how you can make strategic connections with supervisors to elevate your research.
