What are students saying? 
“I liked getting to explore different career ideas and learning styles that worked best for me; I learned a lot about myself in the process. I was so dead-set on one career path and now am considering another because I know I have varied interests and strengths that this course helped me discover.”

“The thing I liked most about this course was learning how to network with other people and professionals in the field. This was a step that I was unsure of how to take, as well as afraid to try out. This course really helped me overcome that barrier and obtain a better understanding of what it is that I would like to do in my field of study.”

“I would definitely recommend this course to other students because I feel that it has helped me to prepare for my future and get a sense of all the possible paths I have to consider. Also, it has introduced me to different resources to help me better prepare for interviews and potential jobs/research positions. Lastly, I related a lot to the readings we had to do and I liked that it showed me that I wasn’t alone in my thinking and obviously others have similar feelings or thoughts about the topics”
