Though I just started my first year at Marquette and I'm not too concerned about finding a job after graduation, I know that it's important to start gaining skills and experience early in my college career. What steps should I be taking now to ensure greater success down the road?




It's important for you to take time to settle in to your college experience. Once you feel as if you have a handle on your social life and your academics there are some things you can do to begin the journey to career success. MUCSC recommends taking a look at the career paths we have laid out for students. My guess is you should start with Career Goals. We provide a checklist of activities to get started.

Remember, a career counselor is here to guide you through the process as well. Make an appointment today!
