Freshman Career Development

Last updated August 15, 2018

Career Exploration:

Do you have a major?  A plan for your career development?  Personal and professional goals for after graduation?

By identifying your career development goals for the future Career Services can work with you to map out a specific strategy to reach your aspirations.  It’s never too early to start!  Check out the college timelines to see if you are on track.

Don’t have a major?  Don’t stress out!  It is OK to take classes toward your flags and distribution requirements to help you explore various academic and career areas.  If you want to work more deliberately toward a major, Career Services, can administer a career assessment test and sit down with you to discuss your results.

Freshman year is the best time to get involved, both on campus and in the community.  Not only does this involvement help forge a connection to campus, and meet other people, it can also help build your resume with leadership and teamwork accomplishments.  Click the link to find out what types of opportunities are available with campus groups and organizations.
