Mentor Memos


What’s the best way to pick a lab? How can you manage a large writing project? How do you work the crowd at a cocktail party with confidence and ease? These topics – and many others – are not necessarily covered in a graduate student’s coursework. But knowing how to manage time, the best way to negotiate a salary and how to turn a dissertation into a book can be invaluable to a successful education and career.

The UW Graduate School offers a series of Mentor Memos — penned by UW faculty and staff — that cover these topics, and much more. The memos often complement a slate of professional development workshops offered by the Graduate School throughout the year.

For more information and to suggest topics, contact Graduate School Communications Director Elizabeth Lowry, or 206-685-6793.
