We encourage you to begin thinking about your post-graduate plans beginning your first year at SNC.

Four-Year Plan for Career Development

Heading down a successful career path means taking some early steps — and that means visiting Career Services during your first year at St. Norbert College. The first step is the physical stroll to our office in Todd Wehr Hall, suite 215. The second is a series of career building steps that begin in your first year and end when you develop a satisfying career plan. The Career Services staff can be a great resource to help you successfully complete your career plan, so use the services of the office early and often.

You’ll note that some of the activities below are repeated during the four-year plan, to encourage you to re-evaluate your plan as you become more knowledgeable and gain new skills during the college years. In addition to these activities, be sure to visit our career library where you'll find many career-related books that can be checked out, along with helpful handouts and other career development materials.
