Q. When should I go?
A. Don’t wait until you are a senior to visit your career counselor. It’s best to plan ahead and begin thinking about your career path as early as freshman year. You’ll need time to build your resume through volunteer/intern or work experience and your counselor can help you through this process.
Q. How much time should I commit to my career planning?
A. Commitment to career planning is a personal decision and varies in length, depending on one’s individual needs and attitude. Involvement may be as simple as a visit to the Career Center, or it may require extensive investment of one’s time. Commitment to career planning increases greatly when you become aware of your interests, skills, personality style, and how they would relate to the world of work. Keep in mind that a typical job search takes 3-6 months.
