Career planning advising

The focus of this appointment is self-exploration (i.e. strengths and interests) as you consider career options. As you work with career advisors, the goal is to gain enhanced insight about yourself and corresponding career options to further research and discovery. At the end of your career planning appointment, you will have an action plan for next steps in your career planning which will likely include a follow-up appointment with the career advisor.
