Career Action Plan

A Career Action Plan is a roadmap that takes you through the process of exploring and gathering information about yourself and the world of work.  This information can be used to make informed decisions that will lead to a rewarding career. Students will work through the career process at different paces depending on individual needs, interests, and motivation.  No matter your stage, it is important to begin NOW to explore who you are, what you want, and how to fulfill your career goals. 

What follows is a basic 4-year outline with recommendations for each year in college.  Be sure to read the steps recommended for previous years as steps relate to all students.

First Year: Inquiry & Awareness

Sophomore: Explore More

Junior: Experience

Senior: Launch
