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:
Recruiting and information sessions with potential employers
North Korean provocations and threats have created an unstable environment on the Korean Peninsula. Alum Bruce Bennett (cohort '75) and colleagues say the U.S. and its allies must attend to four interconnected problems. Failure to prepare will increase the chance of miscalculation and constrain options to reduce the likelihood or gravity of future conflicts.
Recent changes to the Affordable Care Act, including the elimination of the individual mandate penalty, may reduce enrollment in the individual market. But research by alum Jodi Liu (cohort '12) and Prof. Christine Eibner finds that, even with these changes, options exist for increasing health coverage.
The successful resettlement of Syrian refugees is dependent on political commitment coupled with public support and community engagement, according to research by student Gabriela Armenta (cohort '15) and alum Mahal Woldetsadik ('13). Social and economic policies to address the crisis require a combined effort in planning, implementing, monitoring, and assessing initiatives, and sharing data with stakeholders.
