Aurora by Beyond the Professoriate

Aurora by Beyond the Professoriate is an eLearning Platform with on-demand, self-paced learning modules that allow PhDs and Postdocs to discover career options and methods to apply the skills acquired through their education. By completing two programs of study, graduate students explore career options and learn job search strategies to pursue employment beyond the professoriate.

Aurora benefits graduate students by:

  • supporting career exploration
  • providing accessible, well-curated resources for busy graduate students
  • promoting engaged learning through reflective activities that encourage students to apply what they’ve learned
  • complementing existing on-campus graduate student career supports
  • offering recorded seminars, reflective prompts, and assessments that guide the student experience and foster user engagement

Students should click the “View Resource” button (below the video), select the University of Pennsylvania from the dropdown menu, and login using their University ID.

This resource has been brought to campus with support from Penn University Life and GAPSA.
