Career development is a lifelong process. Employment opportunities may vary throughout a person’s work life.
There are three fundamental questions that everyone who works both experiences and seeks to answer. Each of these questions may reappear as we “work” at our careers.
You must know yourself and the market demands before identifying and evaluating your options. Our mission is to help you identify your goals and connect you with opportunities!
If you are unsure about your major or career path, begin with self-reflection. In order to make informed choices about majors and careers, students need to first evaluate their values, interests, personality traits, and skills.
Evaluating these personal areas requires honest reflection and many students and alumni find it helpful to work with a career consultant to ensure that they are conducting a thorough self-assessment. Choices Planner is an assessment tool you can use prior to meeting with your consultant. There are other assessments offered through the Career Center and, after talking with you about your interests, a consultant may recommend that you take one.
Following is a Career Action Plan that provides recommended steps beyond self-assessment to help you reach your goals.
