Take Your Career to the Next Level
Is your career moving in the right direction? We know how important it is to stay on track with your professional goals. That’s why Penn offers a wide array of tools to help you take your career to the next level.
Career coaching is a free and confidential service for Penn staff members. This is your opportunity to get advice on career development and mobility, ask questions about your particular skill sets, and more. Individual coaching sessions include a self-assessment and help you define your own career values and goals and develop an action plan for meeting them. This is also an excellent way to learn about interviewing, networking, and resume development.
If you’d prefer to browse through our career resources at your own pace, consider visiting Penn’s Career Center. You have access to books, articles and videos covering a wide range of career topics—such as networking, job search strategies, resumes, interviewing, and negotiating salaries—in a quiet and comfortable environment. For hours of operation or to schedule an appointment, visit www.hr.upenn.edu/Learning/CareerCenter.aspx.
You can also get valuable career advice by participating in the Mentors@Penn Program or one of our free, career-focus lunchtime learning opportunities.
