Lifelong Management

    • Career management doesn’t end once you get your first job post-graduation!  Throughout your career path(s) you will need to continuously manage your career.  Here are some tips on how to do this:

      • Join a professional association to stay on top of trends and changes in your industry.
      • Commit to lifelong learning, even if it does not directly relate to your career.  Take online courses or in-person workshops, tune into webinars, read industry articles or participate in online discussion groups.
      • Keep your LinkedIn (and other social media sites) up-to-date and interact with other professionals regularly online.  We have a lot to learn from each other!
      • Maintain current knowledge of IT platforms and programs that are used in your industry; make sure that you don’t become out-of-date!
      • Always update your resume, and online profiles, when you acquire new skills or take a new course, even if you are not looking for a job.
      • Keep in touch with any contacts that you make (including Student Employment Services!). 
      • Stay healthy.  Find ways to manage stress with exercise, diet, sufficient sleep and fun!
