November is National Career Development Month

The HBCU Career Center has created a list of career strategies -

1. Set personal goals!

2. Stay away from those who say "You Can't" when you know you can.

3. Plan and prepare for the long haul. The race is not always for the swift.

4. To land a really meaningful job, prepare for a really tough interview.

5. Keep improving through the job search and beyond; don't believe you know enough.
