Life—and your career planning process—probably won’t unfold in a linear, neat manner. Uncertainty and change are a part of life so you need to plan with this reality in mind. Make your plans based on the best information available to you but stay open-minded, flexible, and notice when unexpected opportunities come your way.
In your student account, use the Where Do You Want to be in Five Years Activity to help you see the need for flexibility. You can find a PDF version of this activity and all other Career Center activities on the Student Activities page.
