Career planning is a lifelong endeavor that allows individuals to take an active role in their own professional development. The cycle generally starts with self-discovery from exploring personal aspirations. Next, investigating occupations helps you understand how interests, abilities, strengths, values, etc. relate to potential careers. Third, the integration between personal goals and the realities of the world of work characterizes effective decision making. Finally, decisions must be implemented for personal objectives to be achieved. You are encouraged to proactively engage in this ongoing process to increase career satisfaction throughout your working life.

It is our goal to assist individuals and groups with the career exploration process as it relates to career readiness, including career options, academic preparation, occupational research, decision making, goal setting, and implementation.
