Wanna get away?

Admit it, you've had those dreams of "working" in the Latin Quarter in Paris, the bustling streets of Shanghai or on the shores of some remote Mediterranean island. That's about the time you usually wake up, or realize that those opportunities are a long way off.

But who says that working abroad is just a pipe dream? At Drexel, you can do your Co-op abroad in any country you would like!

So this is the New Year...

Welcome Drexel students, new and old! The 2012-2013 school year is officially off and running. For many, this new year will be completely different than the last couple of months. Many students are coming back to Drexel after studying abroad. Others are returning to class after working on their co-op. And, of course, there are the many new students who are starting their first year of college today. For the Freshmen, today represents a new beginning, providing them with many new opportunities to grow and explore.

The B-Round Blues...

So, it's B-Round and you're still looking for a Co-op. You didn't get anything in A-round. You've had some interviews, but you're nervous about how well they went (since apparently your A-round interviews didn't go as planned). You really don't want to wait for C-round or have to go work for your Aunt Agnes. So what do you do?

First off, relax. Not every student is going to be placed in A-round. In fact, the odds were against you to do so anyway. Many times, it's simply a case of students and employers just not being a good match.

Make a Career Plan!

Around this time, many companies, including Drexel, begin to make yearly and multi-yearly goals. They sit down and think about how they can improve their services all while trying to fulfill their mission. But they shouldn't be the only ones making these types of plans.

You can, and should, sit down this summer to come up with your own "Career" plan before you come back to school. Sit down and take a look at where you have come so far in the past year. Next, you want to look at your overall career goals. If you have yet to create a career goal, then make one.
