Look for employment related opportunities while you are a student to gain new skills and valuable hands-on experience. Jobs and internships are not only a good source of income, but can help you figure out what you do and don’t want to do. You can find part-time jobs and internships on the employment website. Students should also consider job shadowing to see first-hand what a day in the life of a professional is like.

Involvement and Service

Getting involved on campus and in the local community through student organizations, service opportunities or leadership experiences will help you achieve your personal, academic, and professional goals. Getting involved outside of the classroom can help you discover your true interests, strengths, and values.
