The 5 Steps to Build Your Network email course will take students through the steps of identifying professionals and preparing for and conducting an informational interview. They can jump in and move quickly or take their time. There no quizzes, just the information, and structure they need to feel confident moving forward.

EXPLORING CAREERS WITH CAREER CLUSTERS
Whether you know where you're headed or want to explore what's out there, our Career Cluster pages provide information for a variety of job and industry areas. Instead of asking, "What can I do with a major in ___?" think about what big questions, issues, work environments, and job duties excite you, and start exploring from there.
On each Career Cluster page, you can explore common job titles, in-demand skills, niche job boards, professional associations, student groups and organizations and more.
ONE-ON-ONE SUPPORT: THREE WAYS
There are three ways students can get career support - making an appointment with a Peer Coach or Career Educator or by dropping in to Virtual LifeLab.
