Let's face it... you have a lot to think about — what to major in, how to pay for college, what career to go into, whether to go on to graduate school, what to do this coming Friday night, etc. etc. MyPlan.com has assembled a comprehensive set of tools and resources to assist you in making these decisions and to help you prepare for life after college. But as for what to do on Friday night… well, you'll have to decide that for yourself!
If you find yourself getting a little bit anxious about all the impending decisions you need to make, here's some simple, but frank, advice – you'll probably make a few mistakes along the way, and that's alright. Most people change careers at least once in their lives. Most people don't major in what they thought they were going to when they entered college. Change is inevitable. The quicker you understand that, the quicker you'll understand that career planning is a lifelong process. It takes learning. It takes experience. And yes, it sometimes takes mistakes.
But, we're not here to endorse those mistakes. We're here to help you minimize them. While some mistakes are inevitable along the way, we believe that if you plan out a career path thoughtfully, carefully and with special attention to your unique personality, interests, skills and values, that you'll find happiness much sooner in work that is much more personally rewarding.
Below, you will find an introduction to just some of the college-related resources available to you on our site – described in the context of what issues you might be grappling with.
