Finding your Direction

Our intent: to empower, prepare, and educate students for their lifelong process of career success—succinctly sums up our services. Our career coaches work alongside students as they navigate their career path. Although no individual person’s career path looks the same, our career coaches support students through individual career coaching appointments, workshops, career fairs, and identifying and communicating strengths and passions for next steps and beyond.

  • Searching for jobs and internships

  • Resumes and cover letters

  • Handshake and LinkedIn

  • Professionalism and negotiation
