First Year

Career preparation starts during the first year at Aquinas College. Meet early with a career coach and your faculty advisor to help gain a clear direction of your goals as well as aid in choosing majors, minors, courses, potential study away and internship opportunities.  You may find a listing of on-campus jobs or schedule individual appointments on Handshake.

When you know more, you can do more. Need inspiration on how to leverage your strengths? Take CD 100 (Career and Self Awareness), a one-credit course that helps you identify your skills, interests, abilities, goals, and values as they relate to careers. With this information, you can then explore fields related to the discipline of interest to determine if they’re a good fit. You’ll also tackle how to write a resume and cover letter, as well as learn top interviewing tips and techniques. This course is required for graduation and typically taken the first or second year.
