Career Action Plan

Explore!  Experience!  Excel!  Career Action Plan is a handy checklist of suggested activities that assists students in tracking the progress of their college to career transition. Students begin in the Explore phase, in which they assess their personality, expose themselves to new experiences, investigate their options, and gather valuable information. In the Experience phase, students conduct research and start gaining relevant experience. The final phase is the Excel phase, in which students organize their resources and learn to manage their campaign.

Throughout the school year, we offer individualized career counseling by appointment. We present career workshops. We sponsor career fairs, grad school expos, information sessions, and on-campus interviews. We facilitate student participation in internships, job shadowing, mentorships, and mock interviews. We have an amazing collection of resources in our career library. We maintain an updated job posting binder. We host an on-line career management database.

We administer various career/personality tests, assessments, and inventories. The results of these tests are the basis for meaningful conversations we have with students concerning their self- assessment, career exploration, and career planning. They can be real enhancements to the advising process.
