Welcome Parents

Students and Parents

Your son or daughter just left for (or returned to) college but doesn't seem to have a clue as to what they want to major in, let alone choose as a career. Don't worry! Although you might wish your student had a little more sense of direction, this is not unusual.

Choosing a career is a process and students go through the stages of this process at different rates of speed. The process entails:

  • assessing skills, interests and abilities
  • exploring majors and career options
  • experimenting with possible career options
  • organizing and conducting a job or graduate school search

Meaningful career employment is one of the most important outcomes of your student’s university experience.  The Office of Career Services is eager to guide your student through the challenges of this process.  Encourage your student to visit our office early and often to meet with the staff to take advantage of the full range of free, innovative programs and resources available.
