Getting the Education and Training

Now that you’ve identified some career choices, you can begin to determine the education and training that you'll need.

Do you need to earn a graduate degree?  Do you lack work experience?  Would internship opportunities or specialized training help develop your career?

Note:  you can revisit a spoke in the Career Planning Wheel anytime—the process is circular not linear.

How can USM help you acquire what you may lack?
