Choosing a major can be a bit intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Apply for the Fall 2014 Exploratory Career Coaching Group to get resources and support to assist you through this process. The group will be made up of 5 to 8 students who meet weekly to discuss their experiences and reflections, and receive guidance on self-exploration and career planning. So you get help with figuring out what you want to do with your life (for free), get to meet other people who are 'in the same boat' as you, and we have fun!
Discussions and activities will be facilitated by a professional career counselor and will include topics like: interests, skills, values, internships, resume writing, occupational research, 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.
Participants in this group are expected to attend all 9 meetings in the fall semester. A weekly meeting time will be chosen based on a time when the highest number of participants can attend. The group will begin the last week in September or first week in October.
Applications for the Exploratory Career Coaching Group are due Sept. 19 and can be found here or by stopping by Career Services in Muller 101. There is no charge for participating in the group, nor is it for academic credit; it’s simply available for students who want to take advantage of Career Services as a resource.
If you have any questions about the group, please contact Caryanne Keenan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
