College Freshmen, Start Your Careers

Both of these blog entries say the same thing: you should start thinking about your career choices as soon as you enter college. That doesn't mean you need to freak out--but rather, start visiting the Career Counseling Center at Niagara University, considering how you will spend your upcoming summers, and begin preparing for a graceful exit four years from now. 

It's a lot easier to change your mind in the middle of (say) your sophomore or junior year -- add a few courses that will give you the skills you need for a career you hadn't thought about previously -- strategically target a handful of internships -- than it is to graduate with "hire me!" desperately taped to the top of your mortarboard as you graduate.
