Career Development

Career planning is an important process that can lead you to a satisfying and rewarding lifestyle. It involves clarifying your academic and career interests, identifying connections between your course and career options, identifying skills, strengths and values, researching jobs, careers and employers that interest you, and developing a successful job search strategy.

Career planning is not a process that stops once you leave university. The skills you learn now to develop your career will serve you for a lifetime!
