Finals Week & Four Year Plan
As the end of the semester draws near, the Career Center would like to take time and wish each and every UMaine student the best of luck on your finals! We understand the pressure and stresses this week can bring to our students not only because of the exams and final presentations you will have, but also because it marks a period of transition in your life. For some, you will be graduating on May 5th and for others, it denotes the end of another year (until the next comes along) at UMaine.
Graduation is an exciting time with an overflow of dreams and aspirations but for many students, the time leading up to graduation and the start of a first job is also often chaotic and stressful. You are trying to complete your college career without too much of a senioritis meltdown while also dealing with the demands of job-hunting, interviewing, and facing the reality of the end of your studies. It is quite the intense transition (to say the least) and we want to provide you with advice and resources to help make it as smooth as possible for you!! Most importantly, you should enjoy this time in your life and remember that as big as it feels, your decisions are not set in stone!
For our returning students, whether you realize it or not, you too will be facing a transition in your life. You will be embarking upon yet another year of school—another year that brings you closer to your graduation date. It is important to keep in mind the tasks that you should be accomplishing in your time at UMaine in order to best position yourself for a smooth transition out of school and into the workplace.
With this in mind, we have created a section at the bottom of our Career Center website titled, “Most Popular Handouts.” Here, we have listed the top five handouts for UMaine students to access in order to gain some perspective as to what they should be thinking about or doing in regard to their future plans. The handout we’d like to focus your attention on at this point in time is the handout titled, “Four Year Plan.” This is an extremely informative breakdown of information for undergraduate students that you should consider when approaching the next year of your education. If you have any lingering questions or concerns after viewing this handout (or questions in general), do not hesitate to get in touch with us at the Career Center. One of our career counselors would love to meet with you and discuss a course of action tailored to your vision and future goals!Posted in News
