TanyaWelcome to Tanya’s Career Space.

This page was designed for my students to prepare for their career. I have put together a working document which I add to every semester of curated links on common career planning and job search topics. Over the years I have gathered resources from co-workers and websites to benefit people who are searching for their career path and employment. I have organized the site contents by topics shared by any career/job seeker, followed by information for specific programs.
