Career-planning checklist for first-year students
Advising - Our Career Staff can assist with self-assessment and career exploration in addition to enhancing job and graduate school search techniques. Career Counseling can help students define skills, values, and interests, while developing a plan for the future.
Internships - Internships help students gain the practical knowledge and skills that will be marketable upon graduation. Students plan their own internships, shaping them to fit their interests, skills, and academic background.
