HELPING YOU REACH your CAREER DESTINATION

Knowing what you like to do and can do well is important in focusing your career objectives. What are your values regarding money, prestige, and creativity? Do you prefer working alone or on a team? Do you see yourself in academia or in industry? On Wall Street or in a rural village? What are your goals one year from now? Five years from now? What are your preferences concerning geographic location environment, type and size of organization?

All of these factors - values, goals, work preferences, personal traits, interest areas, and skills - influence your career objectives. Use online resources to complement in-person meetings with career services advisors and faculty, no matter what stage of the process you're in.
