Individual Career Advising

All UW-Madison postdocs are eligible for individual career advising sessions with Dr. Brady Krien, the Associate Director for Career Development. Brady holds a PhD in English and Master's in Library and Information Science and has over six years of experience supporting individuals with advanced degrees navigate both faculty and non-faculty career options.

Brady can provide individual consultations on a variety of topics, including:

  • Exploring career pathways

  • Interview and negotiation strategies
  • Networking and building a LinkedIn profile

Individual career appointments can be scheduled either online or in person in HSLC 1210C and can focus on faculty or non-faculty job searches, career exploration, networking, interviewing, and negotiation.
