You’ll want to reflect on the experiences you’ve had so far to affirm your interests and goals. It’s also time to expand your professional network, update and polish your professional portfolio, including your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn, and meet employers who are seeking profession-ready NU students just like you. Attend Career Design’s events to network with recruiters and potential employers. You might also consider whether graduate or professional school is in your future. Our nationally ranked Career Design office can help you with all this and more!
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.
To sign up for a coaching lab, go to our events calendar. In addition, many other useful tools and resources are available:
- Visit the Career Design website for helpful resources on how to draft your resume using VMock Smart Resumes, practice for an interview with Big Interview, learn Tips for working remotely, and explore major-career guides to see how different fields of study can lead to a variety of occupations.
- Sign into NUworks for posted internship and employment opportunities, as well as other career resources and 2021 co-op opportunities. (Fall 2020 co-op opportunities are in NUcareers).
