Career Connections provides students with opportunities for employment, internships, volunteering, networking, and personal and professional development from their first semester on campus to their last. Whether it is exploring career opportunities, uncovering individual strengths and values, or job searching, we provide students with comprehensive resources and knowledge to ensure they are on the path towards career success.
As parents, you have a significant impact on your students’ career development path and are a fundamental part of the Career Connections community. We encourage parents to talk with their students about where they are on their vocational journey and recommend they seek out Career Connections for support, resources, and expertise. For first year, second year, and transfer students, it is particularly important to explore possibilities by discovering major and career options, taking assessments that demonstrate how personality impacts career choices, and try out potential career avenues by finding summer employment or internships.
Coming this spring, Career Connections will be hosting a five week series titled “It’s Not Too Early” to initiate career exploration and preparedness for first year, second year and transfer students. On week one, students begin their exploration by discovering strengths, values and career interests. Week two covers options related to majors and potential career paths. Week three uncovers tools that will help students construct a professional, college resume. Week four promotes the power of networking by utilizing LinkedIn. Week five tops off the series by uncovering strategies and resources to begin the summer job or internship search. See a list of program dates here
