Language news, events, and opportunities for students at UW-Madison
Advising + Tip
Academic and career advising for language students with International Directions Advisor, Michael Kruse.
Planning your career is a process, not a destination. Not knowing all the answers is totally normal and fine - but you've got to take action to begin to find the answers. Meet with an advisor, volunteer, do an internship, whatever. Just do it expecting to learn about BOTH yourself and the work you do.
