For Students

Ready to think about your career and job searches?

Throughout your time at the College of Nursing, you will hear valuable career advice from your professors, your advisors, student services advisor and guest speakers from the Career Center and the world of healthcare. Take good notes! Have questions? Follow up with them.

Here are some action items to add to the advice they share with you and help you get started: 

  • Think about what you want to do and where you might want to do it. Be flexible along the way. 
  • Create your resume (see Career Center resources for samples) 
  • Make an appointment with the Career Center to have your resume reviewed and to participate in a mock interview. The feedback is valuable! Prepare answers to some of the key interview questions you will most likely be asked. Don't forget to register for Handshake to keep up with events and postings. 
  • Have letters of recommendation written along the way while you are fresh in the mind of the most recent professor. 
  • Remember that your advisor is also a mentor, so feel free to talk through any concerns or questions with her. 
  • Join our LinkedIn group, Villanovans in Nursing. Network with other members who have shared interests and watch the page for new posts. 
  • Do your research on the organizations where you think you want to work. 
  • Attend alumni-related events to meet new people. 
  • Connect with alumni at institutions where you may want to work or in specialties that interest you. 
  • Attend Career Day at the end of the fall semester. 
  • Along the way, stay organized and dedicate time to the process.
