>>Steps One and Two to develop your career<<
STEP ONE: Spend time reflecting on your personality and skills and identify how you’d like to grow. Then focus on that goal.
The first step toward career development is figuring out what you’re working with and working toward. Spending time reflecting on your personality, skills, interests, and values can not only help you think about what your future might hold but also help you figure out how to get the most out of your time at Middlebury.
It is important to make informed choices based on who you are, what you value, and what you can offer to the world. Take some time to consider where you want to go in your career. What is your next step?
Once you’ve clarified your goals, figure out what skills you’ll need to develop or strengthen, what types of experience you need to gain, and what connections will be helpful to cultivate before you make your next move. Keep these skills in mind as you come up with a plan to develop your career. And stay focused.
STEP TWO: Career exploration is a process. You do not need to have all the answers, but we do ask you to embrace exploration, risk taking, and discovery. We invite you to schedule a meeting with a career advisor to discuss options.
The second step is to remind yourself that career exploration is a process. While some students know what they want to do after graduation, the majority of Middlebury students spend time and get lots of help along the way as they consider and discover their career options.
The CCI welcomes you in this journey of exploration and invites you to schedule an appointment in Handshake for an exploratory conversation with one of our career advisors. You can also begin the exploration process with our Career Exploration Guide (link below).
Ever yearn for something more to your career than the promise of wealth? Believe that the true way to happiness, is making other people happy? Then you likely have considered impact.
No matter what your career interest are, we want to hear about it! From AI development, to impact investing or global priorities research, the options are endless. Effective Altruism is a global community of students, professionals, and activists who frequently ask themselves and each other: what does doing good in the world actually look like? Why should we even consider the idea of doing good? And what are the most effective ways to do so? What goals are actually worth dedicating 80 years of your life to? Come explore these questions with us.
