Career Development at Edgewood College empowers students to apply their education toward achieving their career goals and living a meaningful personal and professional life. In addition to our work with students, career development builds and maintains relationships with faculty, staff, community partners, and alumni to create a more just and compassionate world.
The career development action plan is a road map to help you achieve your career goals. Use this tool as a guide to achieve your career goals. The key is to set up smaller goals to propel you along your path. Individualize your journey while utilizing ideas here to keep you on track for your future!
