Career Development Timeline

Heading down a successful career path means making a plan , the beginning step of which is meeting with your Academic and Career Counselor. They will be an invaluable resource to you throughout your time at Edgewood. The Academic Success and Career Development Center believes in connecting you with the best resources to ensure a successful and valuable experience at Edgewood College, and prepare you for exploration and pusuit of post graduation success and meaningful personal and preofessional lives.

Please note that some of the steps in your Career Development Timeline are repeated in different phases to allow you to re-evaluate your plan as you become more knowledgeable and gain different insights during your time at Edgewood.

Reflect: After each phase in your career development, take the time to reflect on your experiences to ensure you make sound decisions about your academic, extracurricular, career and life choices. This will allow you to develop clarity, competence and confidence in your career goals!
 

It’s time to explore and understand what matters to you most, and to learn as much as possible about the potential majors and careers available in your fields of interest. The action steps in this phase help you engage in self-awareness, self-reflection, and academic/career investigation in order to find and articulate your passion in a powerful, clear way.

  • TypeFocus Career assessments can help you explore your interests, skills, values, and preferences as they relate to choosing a major or career. While no assessment can perfectly describe who you are or what your career is to be, they are valuable in helping you narrow your search and consider options you may not have previously considered. Please take the assessment called Type Focus and use the Access Code of ec334. This tool will help you discover a career that honors your strengths and uniqueness.
  • Take IC 205: Finding your Purpose, Major and Career. This is a 1 credit, 8-week course which assists students in assessing their interests, values and skills and relating that information to career options. Interest inventories, strategies for career development and informational interviewing are also included in this course.
  • Meet with a career counselor and select courses that give you an opportunity to determine what areas you will most enjoy studying. The career counselor can help review your TypeFocus results, talk about your major, and/or start or review your resume. They can remind you of events on campus you should attend like Career Week, the Etiquette Dinner, and mock interviews.
  • Register on Career Connect. Click on the red Career Connect button on the right hand column of this page. All students are automatically set up with an account. You can submit your resume online which will be critiqued by one of our staff members, apply for jobs and internships and receive announcements that pertain to your major through this service. 
    Explore What Can I Do With This Major to see common careers connected with your major.

The second step in the Career Development Timeline is designed to learn more about the majors and careers that might interest you. You can always take a career assessment to verify your path. This is the time to take your career interests for a test drive. You can gain experience and perspective regarding the career path you are considering through experiential education opportunities, student organizations, campus ministry and study abroad programs.

  • Research careers on O*NET Online – a great tool for career exploration and job analysis.
  • Create or update your resume. Attend a resume workshop to learn about new trends as they relate to the current economy and learn about how your on-campus involvement translates into skills that employers are seeking. This includes updating your profile on Career Connect where you can declare your major or change your career preferences. Updating your profile will help us keep track of your interests and we can keep you up-to-date on relevant career event and opportunities. Don’t miss out on opportunities with an outdated profile!
  • Look into volunteer opportunities, part-time jobs or internships. Consider pursuing leadership opportunities within clubs or student organizations. Employers want to see work experience on your resume.
  • Create a LinkedIN profile. Learn about where Edgewood alumni have gone after graduation and research companies. Include activities, organizations, and jobs you have experienced and been included in thus far in your college career. This will help demonstrate your unique skills to potential employers. That updated profile and resume will mean you are ready to apply when you see a position that interests you!
  • Declare your major. Meet with an advisor to make sure you are on the right path for your specific field!

Step three focuses on polishing and refining your career goals, while gaining the competence that comes from real world experience. This is also the time to begin to challenge and develop your self-marketing skills to let people know about you! Look forward to your next step, whether it be employment or graduate school.

  • Keep testing yourself with new opportunities and challenges both in and out of the classroom. Take leadership positions in service and academic clubs, or look at the Edgewood College Center for Global Education and consider studying abroad to learn more about yourself.
  • Attend job, internship or graduate school fairs (like Edgewood College’s Career Week held each fall and spring semester) to learn about options for you and research potential organizations, companies or schools that fit your skills and interests.
  • Develop your online identity and update your profile on LinkedIN and Career Connect if you change your major or career preference.
  • Identifying your knowledge, experience, and skill gaps and filling them through additional coursework, internships, job shadowing, research or other development opportunities
  • It’s time to narrow your career direction and focus on your career path options. Hone your resume and interviewing skills, whether you are striving for an internship or graduate school. Build your professional network by joining the Edgewood College Alumni group on LinkedIn and read and participate in the discussion boards. 
     

Hone your self-marketing skills and dedicate yourself to finding and securing the job you want, or gaining admission to a graduate school that aligns with your goals.

  • Does your Career Connect profile have your most current information and updated resume? Review your profile to make sure your career interests are correct. Check Career Connect to review new opportunities as they change consistently throughout the year.
  • It’s impossible to have too much career-related work experience. Internships are a valuable addition to your resume. Complete an internship or research opportunity in your field.
  • Make an appointment with a career counselor to discuss the options of your career direction, help you prepare for your job search, and practice interviewing.
  • Plan for post-graduation by attending networking events, and reaching out on LinkedIn to take advantage of different opportunities to meet employers in your field.
