You'll now need to begin specific research into industries, organizations and educational institutions and to seek real-world experience through internships. Your goal should be to begin identifying the career field(s) and, if possible, specific organizations, for which you ultimately intend to conduct your strategic job search.
· Research employers and career fields that match your career interests and geographic preferences.
· Seek an
internship that will help you explore an industry and profession of interest to
you. See the Internship Guide located in the JobGrove Resource Library.
· Begin the
process of networking by joining a professional association as a student member
to further your knowledge of a certain field and help you establish a network
of people within your field of interest.
· Review our Junior Status Sheet to provide you
practical steps at this point in your career development.
