Career Tip!

Get a professional's perspective! If you know someone in the field you are considering, ask them if you can job shadow for a day. Be sure to ask questions about regular tasks and responsibilities, benefits and challenges of the job and/or in the industry. This can be a great way for you to see first hand how the things you're learning in the classroom could apply in the real world.
