Prepare for the Job Search

Meet with a career coach to assess your skills and career interests. Attend career exploration events to discover your unique skills and career options. Connect with a mentor in your field.

Career Coaching

Career coaches at the Wasserman Center provide professional, individualized career guidance and support throughout the career exploration process. We can help you identify career interests, explore professional goals, and discuss job search strategies in your specific area of interest. Assessment tools and interest inventories are also available to students who need additional guidance in identifying appropriate career options. An appointment with a career coach can help you:

  • Identify and explore career interests
  • Effectively search for internships and jobs in your field
  • Edit your resume and cover letter
  • Polish your interviewing skills
  • Connect you with a mentor in your field
  • Create a job search strategy
  • Learn about your interests, preferences, and work style with the assistance of an assessment tool (Strong Interest Inventory or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator)
