These Composing Your Career videos, and our other resources, are designed to help you develop a successful career in public service.
In the Tracks Exercise video, we'll take a look at how you can better establish what you’re looking for. In the What Employers Look F.O.R. video, we’ll explore how employers make hiring decisions. And in the S.E.E.

Many of us know that we are committed to a career in public service, but figuring out what that means can be challenging. You'll want to start this process with some serious exploration, and the Tracks Exercise is a helpful way to get there.
What Employers Look F.O.R.
All employers, whether they know it or not, make hiring decisions based on the same three criteria. They want to know you're dedicated to their field of interest, that you can work within the culture of their organization, and that you can successfully perform in the role.
The S.E.E Strategies
The S.E.E. strategies combine what you're looking for with what employers are looking for so that you're better poised for a successful career by maximizing your time while in school. You want to be smart, experienced, and engaged.
