Career Action Plan

Thoroughly, thoughtfully and carefully preparing for a career requires that you take a series of action steps throughout your college program. Self-assessment of skills, interests and values, followed by research and exploration of related careers, may reveal paths that lead to satisfying career options. 

Consult the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior checklists using the navigation links for strategies that move you through the phases of self-assessment, exploration, skills development and job search. Visit our web page for more information.
