Stage #2: Experience

Experience is absolutely necessary for you to make career decisions. Experience helps you learn about yourself, helps you learn about careers, AND helps you develop skills for your future. These experiences can be achieved by students in 4 years of your SBU career.

Stage #3: Focus

Focusing means it’s time for you to dig a little deeper and move beyond surface career-knowledge. How much do you really know about careers? You will want to focus your career interests by nurturing strong relationships, engaging career conversations with career mentors, and deepening your knowledge through career-related organizations.
 
 

Stage #4: Thrive

Thriving involves cultivating a career identity and professional brand that is based on your values, personality, strengths, and skills. Your career interests will change over time. Learning about careers and yourself is a lifelong process.
