HELPING YOU REACH your CAREER DESTINATION

Knowing what you like to do and can do well is important in focusing your career objectives. What are your goals one year from now? Five years from now? What are your preferences concerning geographic location, work environment, type and size of organization? All of these factors - values, goals, work preferences, personal traits, interest areas, and skills - influence your career objectives.
