The past year has been a busy one for your student who has been researching and writing papers, working on projects, studying for exams and participating in team meetings. In addition to attending classes, he or she has been involved in campus organizations, making friends and meeting new people. However, when you ask your student about where he or she is in regard to selecting a major, finding an internship, or setting up a career plan, you may get a blank stare.
If this sounds all too familiar, consider that summer is a perfect time for your student to explore majors and career fields, start the search process for a job or internship, or update a resume. Oftentimes students think that University Career Services (and other student offices on campus) are closed over the summer, when in fact we are open and ready to help your student create a plan for taking his or her next steps!
