Imagine that you’re on a road trip. You are leaving your home and heading to Cape May for a weekend of peace and quiet. Since you are without a map or GPS, you just start driving. Instead of ending up down the shore, you are now located in Philly. Definitely not sticking your toes in the sand!
Getting focused on an employment plan will really help you narrow what you want to do and how you want to get there. What types of industries are you interested in? Do you need training? If so, what kind of training? Are there jobs in this industry? Where are they?
Really put some thought into your EDP. It is designed to center your job search activities. If you’ve already completed one, but just filled it in to get it done, you may want to do another. Actually, think about it. Don’t use this as a segue to the “next” step.
You will find the link for the EDP below on the right. If you need help, please reach out to your program coordinator for direction.
