Services for Students
The practicum and full-time employment search is a process. Spending time at the beginning of your program assessing your strengths and skills will make your search more efficient and effective.
Analyzing position descriptions to identify the required knowledge, skills, and abilities is also a key step to take early in your job search preparation. You’ll then be able to make compelling connections to the employer’s needs.
If you notice any gaps, there will be time to seek resources and experiences to fortify your background and expand your skill set. Your marketability is enhanced by volunteer work, publications, research, and field experiences.
