Career Advising

Career Advising

Continuing Education offers career advising to help you explore your career options, clarify your goals, and determine the next steps. If you are interested in exploring a new career, career advising can assist in skill analysis and identifying strategies to narrow the focus. Assessments are also available and can be helpful in the career exploration process to identify interests, values, strengths, and personality traits.

We also offer job search assistance including resume and cover letter review, job interview preparation, and networking strategies. Our career advisor is happy to help you no matter where you’re at in your academic or professional career.
