Congratulations, you are in the final stretch! During this time, it’s vital that you update and polish your career portfolio, refine and demonstrate your unique brand, expand and leverage your network, apply to graduate and professional schools or strategize and launch your job search. Our nationally ranked Career Design office can assist you with all this so you can pursue a meaningful career that aligns with your strengths, values, and interests! As an NU grad, you have access to the Office of Career Design long after you leave campus. Whether you are looking to make a career change, need advice on navigating the professional world, or simply want someone to review your resume, Career Design is a lifelong resource.
To help you get started, we recommend the Career Design coaching labs below. However, these are only suggestions. Every learner has different needs. Feel free to browse all of the lab descriptions and the full schedule. You are welcome to attend in whatever sequence works best for you and to return to any and all coaching labs for help as often as needed.
