Your Week in Brief… 1/11/21

Career Services

Are you undecided about your major and future career?  Many students find it helpful to take a free career assessment to identify (or confirm) careers best-matched to their interests and strengths.  We offer the Career Coach assessment that’s free, mobile-friendly and only takes 3-5 minutes to complete.  You can also learn about daily duties, salary, job outlook, required education, potential employers and more for your top-match careers! 

Did you know that Career Services offers online career planning appointments? You can schedule yours by visiting: and selecting “Career Services” as the care unit.  We can meet with you via phone, email or Microsoft Teams. During your virtual appointment, we’d be glad to review your assessment results, listen to your career ideas and answer any questions you have.  We can also provide information about our resume, job search, intern, and interview services.  In the meantime, you can visit our website: for more information. 
Have a fantastic week!
