Spring Break is right around the corner… Do you have plans?
If you’re not hitting the beach, why not use this time for some career
development? This could be a great time to investigate various industries, fine
tune your on-line professional profile, or to learn more about a specific career
path you have been thinking about. Here
you will find the top three ways to work career development into your spring
It seems like a lot of places need good teachers these days,
but the number of alternatives can seem a big overwhelming. You don’t have to be an education major to
start a fulfilling career in teaching.
Much of your preparation
for grad school won’t begin until your 3rd and 4th years,
or perhaps even while working or volunteering after graduation. There are, however, steps you should begin
taking as early as possible. Preparing
for grad school becomes a more relaxed process the earlier you begin.
As you choose housing for your sophomore year, it should hit
you… Your freshman year is almost over! This is not a bad thing, by any means.
You will now be an upperclassman and may not have to make that walk from South
Campus anymore. With this, it also means it is time to start thinking about
your future career. If you have your major decided by now, you are already
ahead of most of your classmates. If not, no worries! This just means you have
to do some more exploring.
As a second semester freshman, you probably feel like your
time here at Carolina is flying by. There is so much to do, and only so much
time in which to do it! Plus, who would want to leave Chapel Hill, between the friendships,
basketball games, and activities you’ve become involved in already?
As a second-semester first-year, I’m sure you’ve
noticed that college classes are a little different than your classes in high
school. Professors expect more engagement with the material, more personal
agency in your learning, and a higher level of thinking. Plus, outside of
class, the workload can be quite a bit heavier and time management is
absolutely essential. If you’ve found that navigating those changes has been a
struggle (you’re definitely not alone!), then you’re in luck, because I have
the perfect resource for you: UNC’s Learning Center.
After a whole semester at Carolina, I’m sure you’ve learned
how crucial the Internet is for basically everything you do at UNC: getting
basketball tickets (or not), reading the Overheard at UNC posts on Facebook (or
contributing your own), and doing a little schoolwork in between (obviously).
To go along with this digital trend, I’m giving you five awesome websites you
should know about and use during your time at Carolina and beyond:
As a first-year student, you now have a little over one
semester of college under your belt.
Congrats! I know you probably have not thought much about a college
resume, especially because you don’t know what you would even include? While
you might believe that the creation of a college resume isn’t necessary right
now, I would argue the exact opposite.
