Career Success as a Sophomore

By now, you’ve gotten the lay of the land. You’ve mastered your classes, gotten involved on campus and are enjoying the city of Chicago. Most of you are probably looking ahead to the summer or next year – with plans to study abroad, perform research with a professor or intern over the summer.

The Career Development Center recommends the following for sophomore students:

  • Enroll in CPSY 224: Career and Life Planning Lab or a Career Self-Assessment Workshop
  • Explore student groups, organizations, and employers related to your career interests
  • Research industries, companies, occupations and workplace cultures
  • Explore major-related internships, jobs, co-ops, and other experiences
  • Attend career development panels and workshops
  • Look for part-time jobs or internships at job fairs

So tune up your resume, polish those interview skills and mark your calendar for Career Week and the Job & Internship Fair on no-fear resume critiques from real industry experts, fashion tips and one-on-one help with interview critiques.

Upperclassmen, what do you think? Anything you’d had to the list?
