Career Counseling

Guidance for Your Career and Job Search

 

Job searching is a job in and of itself.  It requires a significant amount of time and effort.  The Office of Career Services strives to support and guide students and alumni through the process, and we are available for counseling sessions Monday-Friday to help you maximize your efforts and achieve your career goals.


Counseling

 

The staff in the Office of Career Services is here to help students sort through the complex and sometimes daunting process of finding a job that lines up with their career aspirations and qualifications.  Our aim is to help students be as effective and successful as possible in pursuing a rewarding job and career. 

Counseling sessions provide students with an opportunity to:

  • Reflect on and clarify their career goals;
  • Review and revise resumes, cover letters, writing samples and other job search related documents;
  • Develop strategies for finding positions matched to their interests and qualifications
  • Discuss networking efforts and strategies
  • Consider the best ways to access fields of interest;
  • Prepare for interviews; and
  • Discuss any other matters that may help them find an ideal position

Students should incorporate regular meetings with CS counselors into their job search program.  Expectations for meetings should be established during scheduling.  CS recommends that students meet with an CS counselor at the beginning of each semester to re-evaluate goals, practice area interests, and geographic desires.  CS counselors will then be better equipped to target their assistance throughout the remainder of the semester.

Students can schedule counseling appointments through Symplicity under "Request a Counseling Appointment."
