Create a Career Plan

Creating a career plan can help you get the most out of your time at MSU and better prepare you for life after graduation. Regardless of your career interests, it’s important to take the right classes and get good grades, pursue work and internship opportunities, and be involved in campus activities. Most professional jobs require a wide range of demonstrated skills, accomplishments, and work-related experiences. 

Use your time at MSU to explore your options, prepare professionally, and make connections. Engage in activities (like the ones listed below) throughout your time on campus to become more well-rounded and to find a career path that is meaningful to you. Plan to meet with a career advisor often to work through the steps.
