Starting at Simmons this Fall?  While you probably already have a lot on your mind, it is never too early to begin thinking about the next steps in building your life. Recently, the Boston Globe published an article laying out the steps you can take now, as you start your time at college, to get a jump start on the career planning process.

An important point made by the article is that you do not need to focus on a career-specific major, such as one of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) majors, to find gainful employment after you graduate.  The article makes the point that, in fact, without the motivation of actually enjoying one of those subjects, it may be difficult to complete the classes required by a STEM major.

In addition to the steps laid out by the Boston Globe article, the Career Education Center has a step-by-step guide to the career planning process for your time in college.  Interested in creating your own custom career plan?  Meet with one of our career coaches, and we will get you started on the path from college to career!
