There is no substitute for experiential learning. Our industry offers a variety of opportunities to explore the industry.  From the interactive quiz that identifies key areas of concentration to securing internships for course credit or simply valuable experience, a student can identify the necessary steps to achieving his or her goal.

We offer a comprehensive guide to help career seekers explore specific roles and understand the requirements of that job.  Setting specific goals and having a plan will help the student focus on the necessary steps that are required to land the interview and ultimately get the job of their choice. We believe that “choice” over “chance” is possible when the student is prepared and knowledgeable about the position.  As students explore our site, we have highlighted those associations that offer student memberships.  It is also important to note that many of these associations offer student scholarships and opportunities for networking and job shadowing.
