Individual Career Counseling

Life Calling & Career Services offers career counseling, as well as assistance with resumes, cover letters, and interviewing. Career counseling helps individuals discuss their expectations for college and beyond while exploring the realities of the world of work. Career counseling seeks to help students identify their values, interests, and skills. Career counseling offers students a private and comfortable environment to discuss their discoveries and career options. 

Your career advisor will assist in determining which assessments to use to help you better identify your strengths, interests, values, and personality preferences. Many tools are available for the process, and career counseling helps ensure accurate interpretation of the assessment results.


Career Services partners with PathwayU, an online career counseling companion to guide users toward discovering purpose and meaning while exploring majors and occupations that align with their interests, personality, values, and workplace preferences. In addition, PathwayU offers other resources, including detailed career matches, occupational exploration, a job and internship board, and work preparation tools.
