We recommend a proactive approach to your child’s career planning, and that a student’s first visit to the Wasserman Center take place during the freshman year. This way, he or she can become acquainted early with a career counselor, the various services we offer, and with all the elements of career planning and job hunting. Remember that the college years go fast.
During your child’s first visit with a career counselor, we will explore the student's career interests and goals, and explain how to use office services. Next, the counselor will help the student design a career planning strategy. Some students start with self-assessment (a clarification of career-related interests, skills, and values). Others may start with career exploration through various print and online tools. Investigating a variety of professions can broaden a student's awareness of career options and increase his or her knowledge of the world of work.
