Students who have a Career Action Plan feel much more prepared and ready for the professional world by the time they graduate.

Thoroughly, thoughtfully and carefully preparing for a career requires that you take a series of action steps throughout your college program. Self-assessment of skills, interests and values, followed by research and exploration of related careers, may reveal paths that lead to satisfying career options.
