The guidance that I received on career options has been really, really helpful. I honestly wouldn't have even known about a lot of the opportunities that have come up had it not been for my school reaching out to me. We always get—I think it's weekly emails they send us where it tells you exactly the different opportunities and jobs that have opened up either near campus or on campus. So that's been really awesome.
My advisor and I have talked about my career goals a lot. It's really the bulk of what our conversations are, and it has been so, so, so helpful. For a long time, I really didn't know what I wanted to do and kind of talking to my advisor every week or so really gave me an idea of the direction that I wanted to go in.
