Step 3: Research

Once a student has completed self-assessments and done some exploration to find a few career pathways they are interested in, the next step is in-depth research. This will help students make informed decisions and better prepare themselves for the world of work.  In this step, students should combine what they’ve learned about themselves with the results of their research to be confident in their choice of program and career path. 

At BHCC students can use resources like MassHire 360 to access to informational interviews, occupational videos, and expected job openings in MA as well as other states.  Students should meet with their advisors and attend group sessions to learn more about MassHire 360 and how to use it to answer the questions below. 

  • Who can I talk to in order to learn more about this career?
  • How can I gain experience relevant to my future career?
  • What is the career outlook for this major/career?

Step 4: Planning

Students should now use the information they gathered and work with advisors to create a short and long-term plan for next steps.  They can work with their assigned advisor to review their degree and get support planning out their classes for graduation.  If a bachelor’s degree is required for students to achieve their career goals students should attend a Transfer 101 Workshop before meeting with their advisor.  Students will work with Internships & Career Development to create a resume and sign up for Handshake where they can find internship and job opportunities.
