It is never too early to start thinking about your career development!  The following chart suggests the actions you should take each year at Saint Joseph’s University. 


As a first-year student at Saint Joseph’s University, you may be wondering what the Career Development Center can offer you.  In the next four years, you will be learning a great deal both in and out of the classroom.  Upon graduation, you will have several options in your life after Saint Joseph’s.  Perhaps you will embark on a full-time career, or continue on to graduate school, or spend some time as a full-time volunteer.


 As a sophomore at Saint Joseph’s University, you have now had some time to get accustomed to college life.  You have probably declared a major and perhaps have started taking classes in your major.  At the same time, you may not have figured out precisely what you would like to pursue after graduation.


As a junior at Saint Joseph’s University, you may have started to think about your life after graduation.  There are many options available to you—graduate school, full-time work, volunteering, etc.  Now is a great time to think about what you would like to do after graduation so you can put your plans into action as a senior.
