Career

Career advising is essential to the mission of the College Access and Student Success offices. Early career exploration can help students choose the right courses and, ultimately, the most appropriate degree or certification program in alignment with their goals. 

Having a clear goal can also be extremely helpful to staying motivated and recognizing how skills learned in the classroom will be applied in the workplace makes the learning much more relevant. Even students who are figuring out their career interests can be confident that many of the skills developed in their core first-year courses — critical thinking, problem solving and effective communication, among others — will help them attain and succeed at a wide range of future jobs. These are skills employers want, and we want to help students learn to articulate these skills effectively and develop a portfolio of tools and resources to support their career pursuits now and in the future.
