Good career choices are crucial in life, but they are seldom easy. Are you stuck in an “experimental” stage, dabbling in a variety of jobs just to test them out? Tired of holding down a 9-to-5 job that adds nothing more to your life beyond paid bills? Regardless of your background or current situation, it’s never too late to pursue career development. At Strayer University, we help you examine your strengths, skill set, and personal ambitions so you can discover a career path that not only feels right but also sets you up for a lifetime.
