Exploring My Options
Consider graduate school or a post-degree program
Perhaps the career you're interested in requires a graduate education or a post-degree program or maybe you've determined that a post-degree diploma or certificate would make you a more desirable candidate in your chosen occupation. If this is the case, you also need to look at your further education options.
- Research available educational/academic programs
- Talk to representatives from different programs and schools
- Put together a strong graduate school application package
- Practice your graduate school interview skills
