Want help choosing a major? Check out the "Exploratory Career Coaching Group"


Contributed by Caryanne Keenan

The group will be made up of 5 to 8 students who meet weekly (beginning the first week in October) to discuss their personal experiences, reflections, and discoveries regarding the process of choosing a major. Discussions and activities will be facilitated by a professional career counselor and will include things like: interests, skills, values, internships, resume writing, and more. There will be some expectations/activities outside of the meeting times, such as creating a resume, researching occupations, and completing career-related inventories.
