Self-Discovery... pinpoint your passions, skills and interests on your personal career roadmap!
A thorough understanding and knowledge of self, combined with participation in and application of relevant experiences obtained during the process of working toward your degree, is essential. Self-discovery is the road map to understanding your own unique abilities, strengths, skills, characteristics, and preferences that are important to consider in your daily work world. Imagine a future where you are excited to show up to work every morning. Your clarity about self will affect your ability to become competitive in the workforce and will help you land more than "just a job" upon graduation.
