Choosing the next step to take after college can be a tough decision, but there are a wealth of resources available to help you recognize and sort through your options. Whether you are interested in continuing your studies, finding a nonprofit/volunteer position or entering the work force, the University’s Career Services Center is a good place to start – and that can begin as early as freshman year. The center offers individual meetings with advisors, career counseling sessions, workshops, career fairs, a database for full- and part-time job listings, together with help in writing resumes and preparing for interviews.
