Does occupational wellness matter to me if I am still a student?

Yes, and it can matter in a variety of ways while you are still in school, namely while managing jobs and internships as a student and while planning for your future career. Ways to assess your occupational wellness if you currently have a job or internship would be asking yourself if you feel safe at work, if you work well with your coworkers, and you feel that you are set up for success in your role. When thinking about future careers, occupational wellness can involve discerning what you would like to do for a future career, developing skills like resume and cover letter writing, practicing interviewing skills, and finding mentors in your field to help prepare you for your future career.
