The career development process is a journey that involves developing and refining your goals. The earlier you begin to focus on your career development, the more prepared you will be to pursue a wide range of options and opportunities.
Every class you take and experience you gain will build your skills, expand your interests and, most of all, move you closer to success.
The Weston Career Center recommends a Career Action Plan
(pdf), which is your personal road map for securing desired employment and achieving your career objectives. Career advisors are available to help you develop a personalized job or internship search plan.
Components of the Career Action Plan include:
2. Market Research
3. Career Goal
4. Skills Analysis
5. Personal Marketing Plan (résumé, cover letter)
Schedule an appointment with a career advisor to discuss your interests, goals and objectives. Career advising appointments can be made in person by stopping by the WCC, Knight Hall 210; via firstname.lastname@example.org; or at 314-935-5950.
