Career Development Process

The career development process begins as soon as you enroll at ELAC! It begins with exploring your interests and doing research on majors and industries. Every experience you have at ELAC will help define where you want to go next. Start here by reviewing the process. Meet with your Career Counselors to help you decide a career pathway that meets your goals!
