Welcome to our newest Baylor Bears, and welcom back to our returning students! I hope your summer provided time for rejuvenation, relaxation, and most of all…career exploration opportunites. If you follow this blog, you will quickly learn that we advocate for major and career exploration even at the earliest stages of your college experience. Why, you might ask?
The answer is that most of you will one day try to obtain a full-time job. For the majority of you, your college degree on its own will not be the golden ticket to employment. Your relevant experience and your network are critical components, too, and these elements cannot be developed overnight. Our hope is that you have already started learning about yourself and seeking ways to gain exposure to and experience in the world of work. It is important to remember that it is never too late to start, and this is an ongoing process.
Career development can be much more targeted if you have a clear goal in mind of where you are headed, even if the goal may change. How can you obtain relevant experience if you do not know what is relevant? Are you unsure of your major or career goals? The Career Counseling staff are here to help you. We offer a process designed to help you with self-exploration, major and career comparison, and action planning. Our services are free and confidential. Please take this valuable opportunity to invest in your future. You can request appointments by visiting our website and clicking the red “Request an Appointment” button on the right-hand side of the page. We look forward to working with you!
