Personal Career Strategy

The search for a job or internship can be a complex and time-consuming task for an MBA student.  Information gathering is one major component of the search process.  Career decisions are based on detailed data about you and about your occupational options.  Thus, both an internal self-analysis and an external market analysis are necessary.

Six stages of Personal Career Strategy

The process of creating strategic plans that provide a long-term vision has become the paradigm for successful career management. The Smeal MBA Career Services Team has created the Personal Career Strategy (PCS) tool to assist students in developing a personally-defined career management strategy and plan.

The resources and links found in this section are meant to aide in the information gathering process.  As always, do not hesitate to ask for additional guidance from Career Services.
