Earning a college diploma is an enormous achievement. So, first of all, congratulations! But if you’re reading this, you’re already thinking about what comes next.
As the career adviser at DePauw University, I work closely with students and alumni on what is known as the Career Process, covering everything from career discernment to negotiating and accepting full-time employment offers.
