Individual Career Counseling

Career Services works with current students and alumni on an individual basis to plan strategy and tactics, explore jobs and employers, and schedule the many steps during your academic career for post-graduation employment.

Topics covered during counseling sessions range from self-assessment and career exploration to negotiating that first post-graduate salary. To best prepare for post-graduation employment, we require a Career Counseling session as part of the Career Planning Course. This enables a personalized career plan. We recommend all students take advantage of a personalized career plan.
