Entering the Workforce
Planning to go directly into the workforce upon graduation?
Your transition from student to professional will happen more quickly and easily if you are clear about what you want to do for work. If you have no idea or you are still weighing several options but have yet to make a decision, the Career Development staff can help you become more focused so you can begin your job search.
Once you know what kinds of positions you want to target, you will need to generate professional quality job search documents, develop job search skills, and identify prospective employers as part of your job search strategy. Our career counselors can help you do all that.
