Taking Action

If you want to get anywhere, you must take action. At this stage you may choose a career emphasis and begin developing a plan to help you reach your goals. Some questions you might ask yourself include:

  • Do I know what programs would be most relevant to my career goals?
  • Do I know the skills that are necessary in the fields I have chosen?
  • How do I gain the necessary skills to be marketable to employers, or the prerequisites to qualify for a specific graduate degree program upon graduation?

Embarking on this journey will help you to see and learn more about yourself and what the world has to offer. While implementing your action plan you’ll eventually discover whether or not the decision you made is a good fit. But give yourself some time. Attempting something new is always challenging. Few people succeed on the first try, or at least without facing and needing to overcome some hurdles.
