The transition can also feel a little stressful until your post-graduation plans come into focus. The career team can help you develop an action plan that helps you feel supported through this transition.

Job Search
Start your search for post graduate jobs immediately in fall quarter, even if you do not graduate until June. Many large companies plan ahead and what to hire the best talent early in the year. Career fairs, employer information sessions and job postings can all be found on PCO. Check out the college pages on our website for additional job search tools related to your field of study.

Your career advisor can review resumes and personal statements to ensure your application is strong and they can also help you prepare for interviews when they are a requirement for admissions.
