You’re Going to Graduate Soon. Then What?


With a little over a month left in classes, many of you are starting to feel the pre-graduation itch and the call of the wide world. Now is the time to get ready for the next step. When you’re finally holding that hard-earned diploma, what will you do?

It's time to graduate!

For top-quality employment guidance, make an appointment with the office of Career Services, located on the first floor of the library. Trinity staff will help you with career planning, career development, and your job (or internship) search. You can also keep an eye on upcoming Career Services events and attend employer information sessions, job hunt workshops, and more.

If you don’t have time to make it in for an appointment or workshop, try these portable resources: books and articles from the Trinity Library collection. Read up on job-hunting, resumes, and your career of choice. Read from the comfort of home, while you commute, or on campus between classes. Here are just a few of our career-relevant resources:



Search terms for career-related articles.

Try these search terms in EBSCO to find more information.

Finally, if you feel completely lost, start with a free career assessment from the Department of Labor. Explore your interests and figure out what you’re destined to do.

Come on over to the library ASAP and take advantage of these resources before you graduate. Enter the job market fully prepared!

(Too busy with the end of the semester to pay us a visit? Don’t worry. After graduation, register with the Alumni Office and extend your Trinity library privileges. Registered alumni can check out up to five items at a time and can renew each item twice. Registered alumni are also invited to continue using Career Services — so stop by after graduation for ongoing career help!)
