Welcome to the Cougar Career Column!

Hindsight is 20/20, right? Aren’t there times when you wish you could go back and tell yourself the things you’ve learned? It sure would save a lot of trouble and time! Although you can’t give advice to the younger you, you can learn from others who have been there, done that.

The Cougar Career Column will allow you to get the scoop on everything our alumni wish they knew in college as well as tips on how to succeed from your very own colleagues who have begun pursuing professional endeavors. And, of course, our Career Center staff is here to chime in as well. Members from our Career Center team, including staff as well as Peer Career Advisors, will regularly produce helpful content that can be found on the Cougar Career Column.

You don’t have to face the job search alone! You can save yourself time and mistakes by learning from those who are or have recently been in your shoes and succeeded. If the “future you” could give the “present you” any advice, they would tell you that you don’t want to miss this, trust me!
