BSOS Career Planning Metrics

Career Planning Audit

Each undergraduate BSOS student will receive the Career Planning Audit when they reach 75-89 academic credits. The Audit consists of a self-reported inventory that produces customized recommendations to help each BSOS student progress through their career development. The Career Planning Audit will be part of the existing BSOS Academic Audit, highlighting the connection between academic and career planning preparation.
