Career Development

It’s not a place. It’s a process.

Career Development is not an office you go to a few days before graduation. It is a process that you should be engaged in from the moment you step on campus. Through our 360 Advising process your advisors will work with you to help you navigate the career development process during your time here.

 

Your advisors are always here to help, support, and guide you, but this is YOUR journey. How can we help you get where you want to go?

Start by getting an understanding of how our 360 Advising process works and then get more familiar with the 360 Navigator tool below.

Watch our Q&A session to learn more about the career development process, services and opportunities!

           

 

 

This will give you a starting point to understand the process and the milestones we hope you can achieve throughout your academic career as you engage in exploration, preparation, and eventually a launch out into the professional world. Remember, these are not requirements for specific years; they are estimates, and everyone progresses in different ways, and at different speeds. It’s not about being ahead or behind; it’s about following the process and being ready to launch before you leave.
