This paper summarizes the work in progress on the establishment of and, to date, three separate offerings of a career development seminar course aimed at first-year engineering students in the College of Engineering at the University of California, Davis. The course provides information to students on how they can start preparing for a successful engineering career early on in their academic studies. The course also helps students understand the career options available to them as an engineering graduate. Students gain information on how to successfully land an internship or job in the field of engineering and how to thrive in that role. Finally, this course helps students develop valuable professional, leadership and life skills. Student response to this course has been overwhelmingly positive.
