Where to Begin
How would you answer the age old interview question, "Where do you want to be in ten years?" Whether you are considering short-term career goals or making long-term plans, there is value in stepping back and creating a plan. Having a plan can keep you motivated and engaged in your work.
Mentors and More
Building relationships is important to your work and your career. Mentoring relationships can be established through formal programs such as A Day in the Life, Staff Council and the Carnegie Mellon Women's Association. Informal mentoring relationships can come from project teams, supervisors and colleagues. When thinking about mentoring, it is helpful to consider how you can contribute to the relationship you are building in addition to what you might gain.
It is more than just a job. It is sometimes easy to get caught up in the transactional day-to-day work that you do. However, you are part of a dynamic and innovative educational community. Exploring ways to align your career interests with your daily activities allows you to not only build the skills you seek to develop but also integrate them into your work.
