What are your career goals for your degree? Are you targeting a new job, a career change, a raise, or a promotion? Are you earning your degree to stay competitive in your field?
The start of a new year is the perfect time for career-related self-assessment and goal setting to recharge your batteries.
Ask yourself three simple questions:
- Will you have work or volunteer experience to qualify you for your future career goal at graduation?
- Are you proactively building your network and your knowledge of the latest trends in your field through professional associations, LinkedIn groups, and social media sites like Twitter?
- Is your resume updated with your latest experience, your current degree program, and the expected date of completion for your degree?
Would you have a few minutes to learn how our Career Services Center team can help with these strategies? We invite you to watch our short “Meet Career Services” video to learn how we can support you in kick starting your career this new year!
