This is a common benefit of a degree, but doesn’t always happen automatically. For many students, the process of translating an education into career opportunities starts at their college's Career Services Office (CSO).
However, not all CSOs are created equal: some do more—and get better results—than others do. As such, the College Solution blog recently posted several questions you should ask a college’s representatives to get a better sense of its career services. These include the following:
- When does the CSO first begin working with students?
- Can it help with choosing a major?
- How many jobs did it post last year? The year before?
- Does it host job fairs on campus?
- How many employers annually visit campus to find new hires and interns?
- Which majors are most popular among these employers?
To learn what you can gain from these and other questions, check out the full post on the College Solution.
