EXPLORING JOBS AND CAREER FIELDS

The next step in defining your ideal career is to learn as much as you can about your targeted jobs to confirm they are good matches and to determine what skills, experience, and knowledge you need to gain to successfully pursue your goals.  Our Job, Career Field, and Industry Research handout details the information you should gather in your exploration.

For the most complete picture of a future career path, use multiple, informed sources. The following websites are helpful starting places; you'll then want to confirm what you find and get more info by speaking with individuals working in your area of interest.  Our Networking & Recruiting Series, Job & Internship Expo, and alumni receptions are convenient platforms for those conversations, and we can assist you in connecing with alumni, faculty, and other professionals individually too.
