Making this session at the zenith of excellence.
Whether you are aware of it or not, the process of developing your career began when you were born! Your interests, abilities, values, personality, background, and circumstances are just a few of the things that have an impact on your career development. In order to make decisions about your life, education, and career, career counseling will help you learn more about yourself and the workplace.
There is more to career development than simply choosing a major and a job goal when you graduate. It is, in fact, a process that lasts a lifetime, which means that you will change over time, your circumstances will change, and you will constantly need to make decisions about your career and life. Career counseling aims to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to make decisions about your future career and life in addition to assisting you in making the decisions you need to make right now.
What can I anticipate?
Your Vocation Advocate WILL:
assist you in determining who you are and the goals you have for your life, education, and career.
Be someone you can talk to about your thoughts, ideas, feelings, and concerns about your career and educational choices. Help you sort through, organize, and put your thoughts and feelings into perspective.
help you evaluate your interests, abilities, and values as well as the factors that influence your career development.
assist you in locating sources of career information and resources.
assist you in determining the next steps and creating a strategy to achieve your objectives.
Your counselor will NOT:
Tell you what to do, what to major in, or what career path you should take.
help you select or schedule your courses.
Who ought to get career counseling?
Career counseling is appropriate for everyone, including freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and even alumni, because career development is a lifelong process. However, you will be better prepared the earlier you begin making deliberate decisions regarding your future! All freshmen should meet with a Career Counselor, according to our recommendation.
