Unless you are already well-connected in your new industry, you will need career services to take you from education to the finish line of a new career. Ideally, career services includes:
- Help preparing things like resumes and online profiles in a way that is tailored to landing jobs in your new professional career
- Advice, practice opportunities, and feedback in navigating networking, interviewing, and salary negotiations
- An existing alumni and employer network you can use to connect with people and opportunities
Programs options can vary widely from no job help at all, general canned material, in-depth help and individualized support, and even direct job placement. Make sure you ask what is included in your education.
