Career Development and Counseling
Career counseling is available to assist students in clarifying goals, interests, and skills through the administration of career assessments. Assistance is provided with completing applications, conducting job searches, writing a resume, cover letter, and reference list, and interviewing.
Students are encouraged to immerse themselves in a particular career field and strengthen their skills through experiential education opportunities, such as cooperative education, internships, and practicums. Students can receive college credit for completing these programs, as well as gain work experience and resume entries.
Because college students encounter a variety of personal and school stressors, Career Development and Counseling helps students strengthen coping skills, problem-solving, and decision-making skills, and provides support and encouragement through opportunities for group and individual counseling sessions. While short-term individual counseling is available, Career Development and Counseling does not provide psychotherapy or psychiatric care beyond crisis intervention. For those students needing these services, counselors will work with them to find an appropriate referral source.
