Last week I did a workshop for undergrads on some basic tips on how to get started with their career search. I only had about 45 minutes, so I focused on framing up the career search process as Contemplating, Communicating, and Connecting.
A few days later, I realized that what may be more helpful to give them is a template to help them organize their thoughts. I did a similar mind-mapping exercise with my boyfriend, but wanted to create a tool that had all of the questions and guidance built into it.
I built it out on Mindmeister.com, where anyone can sign up for a free account and expand on the template mind map I created. Here’s what I came up with (click on the picture to go to the map on Mindmeister.com):
