Invite us to periodically provide a Student Information Table within your department. Include in your syllabus a time for your entire class to come and visit our offices, as a whole or for private one-to-one scheduled appointments with a skilled Career Services professional. Each of these interaction offers students the opportunity to learn about the vast array of services we have to support them with regard to reaching their career goals.
Individual career counseling, depending on the particular needs of the student, often utilizes a variety of short career assessment inventories / exercises, such as the Meyer Briggs Type indicator or John Holland’s Self-Directed Search. A major goal of career counseling is to show the student how delving into and reflecting upon one’s unique set of values, interests, personality and skills can suggest career paths that would be a good “fit” for the student.

What Faculty Are Saying: Visits
“I scheduled Career Services to have an information table in our CSD office area during the Undergraduate Preregistration Advice Week. Students were aware of Career Services’ presence by announcement in the CSD Advising Newsletter. Our Advisors also directed students to their staff after an advising session. They counseled students who are considering changing their major or want to learn about career opportunities with a BS degree in CSD. They are also a great resource on developing resumes. They handed out many of resume and Cover Letter Guides.”
Professor and Chair, Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD)
“The Capstone is one of the last courses a student takes before graduation. In addition to creating an original project or research paper for public presentation, a student prepares a professional resume, identifies entry level job ads for a particular segment of industry, and writes a cover letter for a particular job. Students are then required to take these materials to the Career Services staff for one on one review. Students say they learn a lot from the Career Services staff and can see that their materials are improved in content and format as a result. Some students also comment that they wished they’d known about Career Services earlier in their college experience.”
