Taking advantage of the career center
Find out what your college's career center offers students. You might be surprised at the wide range of services it provides-often free of charge. In addition to job placement assistance, many career centers offer mock interview sessions to help you practice your interview skills in preparation for the real thing.
If you're still unsure what path you want to take in your career, you can often take aptitude testing to help you identify your strengths and choose a suitable career path. Career centers can also introduce you to professionals and potential mentors in your area of interest. And, if you think graduate school is in your future, career center staff is trained to provide advice and information on continuing education.
