Career Planning

Student talking to employer at Career Fair

As you know, a degree alone is not enough to make you employable. Employers have higher-than-ever expectations of college grads, and being employable today means having the right skills, the right experiences outside the classroom, and a strong professional network, in addition to a degree that is appropriate for the career field you plan to pursue.

That means you need a plan. Remember, regardless of what’s in demand, YOU can be in demand if you make a plan and make your college experience count!

In order to make a career preparation plan, you’ll need to know two main things: what types of skills and experiences will be required and will make you competitive in the career field you plan on pursuing, and what opportunities are available to gain those skills and experiences. In this section, you’ll be able to learn about what all employers expect, access resources to begin exploring what’s most important in your career field, and identify types of opportunities you might take advantage of.
