    Transition: Preparing for the Workforce

    7K0A0879Whether you are a post-grad student looking to enter the workforce for the first time, or in the process of making one of the seven (on average) career transitions most people make in a lifetime, transition can be a very difficult and nerve-racking undertaking.
