There is a direct relationship between how well you follow a specific professional development plan and your ability to secure employment or advanced degrees after graduation. To enable you to create, follow and mark progress throughout such a plan, HWS offers a Pathways Program, a comprehensive process designed to prepare students for professional life.
Assess: Tap into who you are. Assess your interests, values and skills. We encourage you to start Pathways as early as the first semester of your first year at HWS.
Explore: Network and research careers. Get involved on campus and within the community. Develop a gap analysis on your potential career fields.
Experience: Develop your action plan; what are you excited about pursuing? Try an internship. Build confidence, your resume and your portfolio.
Connect: Step forward, put your action plan into motion and accomplish your goals through a job search or graduate school applications.
