Career Development Process

Review the career development process and violet ready skills. This cycle can help students throughout their whole professional life. They will move through these stages at many points in their career and return back as needed to continue to reflect as interests, jobs, and industries change and build skills needed to be successful.

Incorporate the skills into your activities by showcasing how the work you are doing with them directly ties to success in the workplace.

The Network was founded in 2019 to achieve two main goals:

  1. Develop stronger relationships among faculty, staff, and the Wasserman Center.
  2. Create a community of career champions that can meet students where they are to provide support and guidance in their career development.
