Career services for students

Start career planning early

Set yourself up for success – work on your career early and often throughout your degree program. We’ll help you build a career plan to keep you on the right path. You’ll update your plan throughout your education, and we’ll show you how to connect with mentors and experts in your chosen field. We’ll even show you how to be more marketable as you get ready to apply for jobs.

Identify your career goals

Take steps to clarify your career goals:

  1. Brainstorm a list of what you want more or less of in a job.
  2. Use My Next Move or Career OneStop to create a list of job titles that are interesting to you. Focus on education requirements and typical job duties.
  3. Compare the lists from step 1 and step 2 to eliminate jobs that no longer align with your goals. Your new list will help provide ideas about how to refine your career objectives.
