Putting It Together: Career Exploration
How are you striving to achieve your career goals? And how will you measure your success along the way? Rather than letting your college degree define who you are, let the knowledge and skills you acquired in college come to the fore and shine brightly.
Success in college can be measured in many ways: through your own sense of what is important to you; through your family’s sense of what is important to your collective group; through your institution’s standards of excellence; through the standards established by your state and country; through your employer’s perceptions about what is needed in the workplace; and in many respects through your own unfolding goals, dreams, and ambitions.
