Career Advising

You may experience myriad emotions as you consider what you want to do with life beyond your role as student, from what to do with your summer plans to transitioning out of school altogether. Depending on the time of the year or even time of day, you may feel excitement, anxiety, fear, doubts, numbness, confusion, focus, questions, motivation, and exhaustion.
