Yes, it is that time of year. A time to give thanks and gather together with those who are special in our lives. Perhaps some of the people you see during Thanksgiving, you don’t get to see at other times throughout the year. What better time than a family gathering, to ask those you know about their career background? If you have friends or family who work in areas you are considering as a major or career path, they may be just the people to visit with and give you insight about making this very important decision.
If you can’t think of anyone who is currently involved in the career path you are contemplating, perhaps they have friends or colleagues who work in those areas. Thanksgiving can be a great time of networking! These conversations may pave the way for job shadows, information interviews, and maybe even internships. Also, your friends and family will be interested in hearing about your time in college and what your plans are. They may even bring up the conversation themselves!
Enjoy your break and take this time to rest, so you can return to campus ready to finish the semester strong!
