Why Time Management is Critical to Your 
Career Success
1. Your time is a limited resource
Your graduate program will pass by quicker than you think -- Don't be caught scrambling for lost time! Be proactive and check out this four stage career development plan to keep yourself on track.

2. Big goals are achieved by small steps
Transitioning smoothly into a meaningful career after your program involves a variety of activities, each of which take time to carry out and prepare for. Set small, achievable steps each semester and get support from career services.

3. Being efficient with your time = competitive edge
Employers want individuals who can provide quality work in a time efficient manner without a lot of micro-managing - demonstrate your capacity for effective time management by acting accordingly now!

4. Prioritization skills are essential to moving your career and your life forward
Being recognized as an efficient worker is the first step to garnering the respect and trust required for handling more challenging projects at work. When you can do more than what is asked of you in a time efficient manner, you are demonstrating your potential for success at higher levels of responsibility. More importantly, when given increased responsibility in the work place, your capacity to take on new tasks with minimal stress will reinforce the reality of your true potential in the eyes of your supervisors and give you greater confidence, both as an employee and as an individual.
