PHILOSOPHY 

We believe that professional preparedness is a valuable life skill, and it is our goal to put students in a resourceful and empowered state of mind. To do this, we give them the tools, support and confidence they need to be successful in today’s world, by: 

  • Focusing on the student. We are here for your student and what is important to them. We can help them with a wide range of issues ranging from broad career exploration to specific plans for reaching their internship, job, or higher education goals. 

  • Connecting them to resources. Career counselors have a breadth of knowledge about a variety of career fields, but our main expertise lies in the career planning process. We respect your student's privacy, their values, and their uniqueness. 

  • Requiring each student to participate. In order to make progress your student needs to be an active participant. We can advise them about appropriate action steps but they must be the one to act. 

  • Telling each student details about careers, we can help them find the resources to get the information they need. 

  • Recommending tactics and strategies for finding a job or internship. We talk with your student about ways they can discover job or internship opportunities.
