digital heading, text reads Career Development Pathway

At the University of Toledo, we support all students engaging in career development activities to help them discover meaningful careers and professions that capitalize on their unique passions, interests, abilities, values, and academic studies.   

Career development should be an exciting journey for you as a student.

We view your career development journey as a series of stages with tasks and experiences to help you:

  1. Know who you are
  2. What careers might best suit your personal needs
  3. Where you would like to work
  4. How to showcase yourself to employers or graduate and professional schools
  5. How to secure employment or gain graduate school acceptance

We know that each student is unique. We have created the Career Development Pathway as a framework to help all UToledo students to discover and reach meaningful careers and professions that are aligned with their academic studies and personal assets.
