Career Counseling

Research shows that people working in a career that supports their interests, skills and goals are happier, more successful and more fulfilled than people who simply “get a job.” Carefully planning your career—by assessing your strengths and interests, exploring your options, gaining experience and making informed decisions—can help you land the job of your dreams, even in a tough economy. And Career Services is here to help.

Meet with a counselor in a friendly, confidential setting on a weekly, monthly, or as-needed basis to discover into and execute your successful career plan. Whether you’re exploring the link between your major and potential careers, sorting out your values and interests to discover the right job for you, drafting your first resume or conducting your first professional interview, we’ve got you covered.
