Why it's important and how to do it!
- The vast majority of VT graduates had career-related experience during college. Even so, almost a third wished they had gotten more experience. So don't limit yourself to one experience, or one type!
- Use all the ways to get experience, including field study, part-time jobs, summer jobs, volunteering, service-learning, shadowing, para-professional opportunities, co-op, undergraduate research, extracurricular involvement and leadership. Depending upon your major and your career field, other terminology may be used and other types of experience are valuable.
