Taking Charge of Your Own Career


Everyone talks about the importance of having a career strategy that both supports our learning and development while we’re occupying a position, but also provides opportunities to grow into future roles. Working hard, absorbing knowledge and experience, and staying focused, provides a strong foundation to build on here at Saint Mary's.  But now career experts agree that we as individuals are responsible for our career goals and strategy.
