Career Development

Finding a meaningful career, instead of just a job, is important, since work plays a big role in contributing to the satisfaction of life. Many job seekers have an unrealistic expectation of the amount of time it takes to find an appropriate career. Actual work experience is the best way to determine if the nature of the work is a match with your personality. Resume-building employment could be through cooperative education, summer jobs, contract work, internships, work-study or unpaid positions.

Professional Networking
