Career Goal-setting and Basic Study Skills. Julian Hilliard Professor of Biology. WHY AM I HERE?... (in college). Well, Dad’s paying for it… You’re just supposed to go to college, right? To meet the love of my life… To socialize – same as High School (duh!). WRONG ANSWERS!

Actually, you’re here so that YOU can PREPARE YOUSELF
for a CAREER that suits your skills and personality.
Find out if the training and skills you plan to
acquire are marketable! That is, “Can I get a
job as a _________ around here in 2008?”
Knowing why you’re putting forth all the money and effort for school will really help you reach your goals.
On the flip side, not outlining your career goals and plan beforehand will likely lead to a longer, more expensive and more frustrating college experience.
Review your notes for about 3 times the amount of time you spent in class.
Remember: The time to worry about a test is before it – not after it.
