Career development begins with self-assessment – thinking critically about our own values, skills, interests and preferences. The next step in career development is exploring and researching career paths that seem like they may fit with who we are. The Career Development Center offers several ways to engage in this process. We suggest that you initially meet with an advisor to clarify your career concerns and identify the Career Development Center resources that will best meet your needs.
Career Development Center Advisors believe that career development is a process that involves much more than landing a job, and are ready to assist you regardless of where you are in this process. Career Advisors help students to assess individual interests, skills, and values; research the career potential of academic majors; develop networking and interviewing techniques; and connect with potential employers, internships, and other professional development opportunities. One-on-one appointments are available to all current students and alumni.* To schedule an appointment, please call us at 773.508.7716.
