Explore Career Options

Assess your interests, values, and skills. Clarify your career plans; it's difficult to job search without a sense of direction. Make an appointment to meet with a career advisor.

Explore by building your network. We cannot emphasize enough that if 60%-80% of the jobs are found through networking, then you need to spend 60%-80% of your job search time networking.

Narrow your focus. Identify employers in your chosen career field and research them. Check LinkedIn to see if any alumni work at target companies; if so, arrange some informational interviews.

Create an action plan. Finalize your resume, cover letter and any other written documents needed. Have materials critiqued at Career Services until approved. Participate in at least one mock interview.

Not sure when to get started? Timelines can be helpful in organizing your career planning.
