Common reasons for referring students to the Career Center
Following are some examples of how the Career Center can assist your students. All of these services are free to students and alumni.
Individual career counseling
For students who wish to better understand how their interests, personality, values, and skills relate to careers, we offer individual appointments. These appointments vary depending on each student's needs. Career counseling is useful for—
- Students who are undecided on a major
- Students who want to change their major, but either are unsure of a different major or wish to confirm that a major is a good fit for them
- Students who are happy with their major but uncertain about a career path
Assistance with and review of résumés, cover letters, graduate school applications and personal statements, LinkedIn profiles, and other job- or graduate-school-related documents
Students of all majors benefit from practicing job interviews. In addition to in-office or Skype mock interviews, students can also practice with InterviewStream.
