We want to help you make a blueprint for career success by practicing the THREE P's: Planning, Persistence, and Preparation

Planning-Career planning identifies your interests, goals, skills. values, strengths, aptitudes, and personality traits.

Persistence-It takes time and patience to determine a career path that uses your talents, satisfies your interests, and incorporates your personal values.

Preparation-Once you have figured out the career you want, it is time to get ready for it.

Please use any of the links we have provided by clicking on one of the Three P's to help you on your journey to a rewarding career.

Computer-assisted career guidance software - these sites are for students of The University of Akron to use in finding a career that relates to their major.
