    Comments from students in previous classes:

    "Before taking this course I would have been completely lost when graduation came. Thanks to this course I feel a lot more prepared. Hands down the most valuable class I have taken while at Hamline. I couldn't imagine a more practical and useful course for students to take."

    "This class pushed me to do the things I was hoping to accomplish this year anyway. But it also led me to seeing the job search in a new light and provided me with tips on how to effectively be successful in the professional world."

    "Please Please Please make this a required course for students to take. I never realized the value [of] the higher private school tuition I was paying until I took this course. This experience for me was what paying higher tuition for 3 years made it all worth it. This course was excellent for finally forcing me to think [about] and plan my future in a way that only the most proactive students are doing on their own. Highly recommend that every student take this course."
