Career Planning

Career Planning is a life-long process which involves a three step process: Discover, Test, and Choose.
  • DISCOVER: more about yourself and more about careers.
  • TEST: your self-knowledge against reality through courses, extra-curricular activities, informational interviews and work experiences including part-time, summer, internship, and full-time positions
  • CHOOSE: make plans and implement choices that are consistent with your self-knowledge and the results of your testing
