The Career Coaching Program a BEAM is an amazing resource. If students are still concerned on where their career journey will take them, here are a few tips to keep in mind.
- Network, network, and network. Students should connect with their faculty, peers, UAR, and BEAM as they are a great resource to bounce ideas with and gain new insight.
- Key tactic students employ are informational interviews with people who hold the job title they would like to have, in a company they would like to work for.
- Another strategy to better help students understand what works for them is to “try it out.” Internships, job shadowing, part-time positions are a great way to get a feel for what type of work they enjoy, the environment/culture they thrive in, and the type of organization they would like to work for.
