Is this course for me?

Maybe you have not had your first job yet. Maybe you are re-entering the workforce. Maybe you are somewhere in between. Whatever your situation, it’s important to think about your career journey. Where are you now? Where do you want to go? How can you get there?

Career planning is an on-going process that ensures you think about your talents, skills, passions, interests, and other factors, and match them with a job or long-term career. This course has been developed to help with this process.
