Career transitions require people to choose from an incredible number of possibilities, translate those choices into goals and adapt in order to reach them. Meeting that challenge successfully requires introspection and investigation into the outside world. Career guidance at our office is designed to foster those activities by helping clients discover and organize what they know about themselves and relate that knowledge to career choice.
Some examples of common needs expressed by students are:
- Develop or identify interests
- Connect current interests with career pathways
- Decide between a number of likely career pathways
- Address anxiety related to a tentative career choice
- Identify careers that are compatible with personal skill set
- Access and understand labor market information

Good resume writing is a process that often seems shrouded in ambiguity. Conflicting advice is easy to find, even among reputable sources. This is because every person's work history is different, every person markets themselves in a different way, and every employer assesses applicants from their own unique framework of values. Although there is no one right solution for every instance, the Career Center can help you learn basic principles that will improve any resume.
Please begin by working out a rough draft with a basic work history. Your rough draft will provide a good starting place to begin when you visit our office. The following links include a resume example, tips/checklist and guidelines to assist you. Other helpful online examples can be located at various websites, such as the Monster Resume Center.
