Shift Into Gear in the New Year (For Your Career!)

Shift Into Gear in the New Year (For Your Career!)

By Jennifer Barr It’s finally 2020 and we hope your break is going well! Many of you have been home for a few weeks now, and we hope you are catching up on sleep, eating healthy and visiting with friends and family. It’s that time of year when many students are trying to figure out practical use of their time before classes begin, and the new year always ushers in a new set of resolutions. One of the smartest ways to utilize January before classes is to spend quality time thinking about next summer, or the next (or initial!) stage of your job search.

Narrowing down your search will help keep things manageable and is an important part of the process. The “I can do any job,...
