It’s never too early for students to come into Career Services to meet with a career counselor. There’s a common misconception that the career office is only for those seeking an internship or graduating seniors about to enter the work world. Did you know that our office not only offers these services, but so many more? Our services are geared towards students of any major and most importantly, any class level. Career Services can assist freshman students with the following services / questions:
- Exploring career interests – Students can meet one-on-one with a career counselor to discuss their career interests. We offer a variety of career interest inventories to help students clarify and understand their interests, strengths, and personality type, and we can discuss how these relate to your son or daughter’s career interests.
- Selecting a major – We help students develop a career plan that incorporates their major and any additional experiences they want to pursue (certificate programs, research, study abroad, volunteering, internships, etc.).
- Developing a plan for pursuing a career, including finding an internship or volunteer opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience. This also includes learning about the various ways to get involved on campus to gain work and leadership experience that will help students develop critical time management, teamwork, and career-related skills that will prepare them for the world of work.
