After wrapping up another semester of our class, EDUC 132:
Career Planning, we asked our students to share pieces of advice with those who
have not taken the class. Here’s what
they had to say:
Learn how to network.
80% of job openings are filled through personal contacts. Begin networking by using UCS programs and
the Alumni Advisor Network. Lastly, do employer research beforehand to help one
stand out during the networking event.
Create a professional LinkedIn profile and keep it current,
follow industries that are of interest to you, and engage in conversation with
professionals and non-professionals. Everybody you meet could be somebody that
could help land you your next job or internship.
