EdCareers Career Education offers a variety of resources to our students, outlined below. In addition to our own offerings, we work with key campus partners to deliver the best possible suite of offerings to our students. 

EdCareers Newsletter

Every week the EdCareers team emails a newsletter with information about career events and workshops happening at the GSE and around campus. It also includes all new job and internships postings from the previous week. As a new student you will automatically receive this newsletter via email.

One-on-one coaching

Register via the EdCareers Portal for a 30-minute appointment with one of our EdCareers staff members on topics including career exploration in the field of education, interview and networking techniques, connecting with alumni and leaders in the field of education, and more. We offer up to two coaching sessions per year to all GSE students.

PhD-specific Resources

In addition to all of the resources outlined on this page for all students, there are also many resources specific to PhD students. Check them out here.

Alumni Directory

After completing one quarter at Stanford, all GSE students are invited to create an account with the Stanford Alumni Association. This enables students to utilize the Stanford Alumni Directory, and conduct searches for alumni working at specific organizations or geographic areas, and also filter by degree program. This is a great resource for starting to Connect with the Players!

The Stanford Alumni Mentoring (SAM) program connects current students with alumni who are willing to share their workplace and educational experience in long-term mentoring relationships. Students at all levels are welcome to participate, and graduate students exploring careers outside of academia may find this resource especially valuable. We highly encourage GSE students to take advantage of this program because only current Stanford students are allowed to find mentors through SAM. Register at the beginning of fall, winter and spring quarters by filling out an online profile and attending a 45-minute orientation.  Sign up for SAM.
