What We Do for Your Students

Did you know 80% of seniors indicate participation in internships?Career Coaches assist students in identifying and executing individualized game plans which increase the likelihood that their passions, their skills, and the market will intersect. A typical game plan will include many, if not all, of the following, and will be repeated through the four years of college, and throughout life.

 Self-Insight & Exploration

  • Students uncover their passions and skills, and discuss majors, jobs, careers, and market prospects with career coaches
  • StrenghtsFinder 2.0 online assessment is used to identify students’ “Top 5”
  •  Career partners provide first-hand insider knowledge about the markets they are in, including advanced degrees needed; help students network; provide professional perspective; and reinforce the insight of career coaches
  • Who am I? What am I naturally good at? What do I love to read, learn, do?

 Professional Skills

  • Experiential Development: Learning experiences outside the classroom that enhance classroom learning, build skills, and foster professionalism
    •  Internships, work study positions, summer/part-time jobs, leadership positions and programs, athletics, community service, clubs/organizations, and undergraduate research
  • Skills Gap Development: Workshops and certificate programs supplement students’ academic experiences, making them more employable and better equipped to pursue the lives they want
    • Excel, public speaking, data analytics
  • What skills do I need to live the life I want to live? What have I already learned/practiced? Where/how might I further develop the skills I need?

 Market Readiness

  • Students will feel confident in their readiness to enter the professional realm or professional school, and will be able to articulate this through narrative
    • Fellowships, research projects, interview preparation for jobs and professional school, and career/graduate school document prep are examples of ways students are prepared to enter the market
