Career Exploration

Not sure what career path to pursue? Don’t worry, you’re not alone, and the good news is that you don’t need to decide your entire life path right now! Most college students today can expect to have 5-7 jobs, and 2-3 different careers, throughout their lifetimes. To help you get started on your next step, we advise you to be curious!

  1. Take our quick, fun assessment, “Join the Party!” to explore career paths best aligned with your career personality
  2. Talk to people! Start with family, friends, colleagues, professors, and other people you know. Ask them about what they do, and what they like/don’t like about it. Then, ask them to recommend 2-3 other people for you to talk to.
  3. Research, read and watch. A few free online resources in this area include:
Career Path Guides

Mihaylo Career Services is proud to announce that we have developed a series of Career Resource Guides in order to further assist students in a successful career search. Organized by academic concentrations, these guides will allow students to get a background in the handful of possible career opportunities associated with that discipline.

Resume Development

Your resume is a key element of your Career Marketing Campaign. More than just a list of your experience and activities, your resume is a targeted document that should answer to the employer’s question, “Why are YOU the best person for this job?” It must convince them in 30 seconds or less, “Why should I hired you?”

To get started developing your resume, create your first draft using Titan Resume Builder.
Next, get your resume reviewed either via an appointment or through our walk-in hours.

Getting Additional Feedback:
Resumes are subjective! We encourage you to get feedback on your resume from a number of sources, especially professionals currently working in your target industry. Mihaylo Career Services will be happy to review your resume via email or in-person appointment. Please allow five business days for turnaround of resumes via email. If you are seeking advice on your resume as it relates to a specific job posting (highly encouraged), please also include the job description in your email request.


Brand Management Plan

Who are you? What are you known for? Why should an employer choose you? In order to stand out in the job market, candidates must develop a “personal brand” that defines their value proposition to an employer and differentiates them from others. The Mihaylo Student “Brand Management Plan” features detailed tools and worksheets to help you define and articulate your personal “brand,” and to plan and manage a personal Career Marketing Campaign that assists you with specific steps required for a job/internship search action plan.
