Career CoachinG FOR RECENT GRADUATES
Students and recent graduates have a lot to think about, especially in this economic climate: What career path should I choose? How can I stand out? How can I network when I don’t yet have a network? What do I do if I don’t like my major, or my first job(s) after school? What internships or experiences will help me find and land the right job?
You have a lot at stake. You don’t want to spend a lot of time pursuing the wrong thing, or spend a lot of money on the wrong school path.
Here’s where career counseling can really help. If you’re a student choosing a major, a young professional uninspired by work, or a recent college graduate struggling in the job market… it may be time to work with an expert guide who knows the ropes, can help you figure out what you’re best at and how to find the right job.
Our network of independent career coaches and career counselors can help students and/or recent college graduates with:
– Career Assessments: Help exploring your aptitudes using various career assessment tools, such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Strong-Interest Inventory, SkillScan, CareerLeader, etc., and working with a career coach to understand how to apply that to the marketplace.
– Career Exploration: Help identifying which careers exist that might suit your aptitudes and interests. This may involve helping you understand resources for career research, preparations for informational interviews, and analysis of various career paths to see if they would actually fit you.
– Resume Preparation: Review and editing of your resume to best position you for the career you want.
– Social Media Career Management: Review of your social media presence (LinkedIn, your public Facebook page, etc.) to ensure that prospective employers see you in the best light
