Sophomore-year Career Action Plan
The Career Action Plan (CAP) at the Mount is a four-year program that guides students through a systematic career development process. Highly experiential in nature, the program is based on our belief that work is a "calling," a vocation that gives your life purpose and meaning. Each year of the CAP includes a checklist of suggested activities to develop a student's skills and career readiness.
Your focus as a sophomore is to explore majors and careers and to appreciate who you are and what you value in relation to the world of work.
