You can download the Career Tasks Worksheet (PDF) or refer to the list below to plan and execute tasks for career planning appropriate to second year students.

  • take time to identify your personality, strengths, interests, values and how these relate to your career options
  • explore work options in your field of study ("What can I do with a degree in....?")
  • build non-academic/transferable skills
  • develop leadership experience through campus and community activities
  • if uncertain about your career direction, book a career consultation with your Career Development Practitioner (Fredericton) or Career Counsellor (Saint John)
  • attend job fairs for summer employment

Regardless of your field of study and program progress, consult with your academic advisor and with the career services on your campus.
