The end is insight!  Let’s focus on viewing your financial plan in a different way. Now is the time to think about your post-graduation budget and shape habits that will ensure you develop a long-term financial plan. We can also support you with reviewing the financial packages with multiple job offers, salary negotiation, student loans, and those first considerations for retirement planning (yes it begins immediately upon graduation). 

Work with the experienced Financial Coaches at the Office of Financial Education. In addition to building a good financial plan, they can assist with exit counseling, help you figure out your loan servicer, and so much more!

The Career Coaches at Career, Internship & Student Employment Services believe that career planning is a process that most people undergo a number of times during a lifetime. Statistics suggest that the average person will make major career changes between 3 and 5 times during their lifetime of work.

While we won’t tell you "what to do", we can give you the tools, resources, and coaching so that you can make a good decision about your major, occupational goals and lifestyle as they relate to your perceived career path.
