From classroom to career: a digital student’s steps to post-grad success

So, you’re ready to make your mark in the digital world? Great. And yet, whether you realize it now or not–having all of the talent and ambition in the world can make transitioning from the classroom to a thriving digital career daunting. But fear not! We’re here to guide you with our Student Success Toolkit, a resourceful collection of strategies to empower you on your path to success.


Build a Strong Foundation

As a student, your academic journey lays the groundwork for your future career. But the transition from theoretical knowledge to practical application can be challenging. Access to experienced professionals can be one of your biggest competitive advantages early on. However, breaking out of your typical school circles may be hard; it’s a critical time to start finding the kinds of organizations and groups that can give you that access. Internships, job shadowing, and informational interviews are a few more ways to get a look beyond the classroom and into the professional world. 

What does your foundation for success look like?
