Spring is in the air! The birds are singing, the skies are clearing, and students are starting to panic about summer plans or what to do after graduation…sound familiar? I’ve had a lot of conversations the past few weeks with students who are worried about how to translate their major to a meaningful first job/internship or how to transition from being a student to becoming a working professional. Or just how to be an adult in the world generally.
This quarter, I’m piloting small group career coaching specifically for Arts and Sciences students to address some of these anxieties head on. Small group career coaching provides personalized support from a career coach with the added benefit of talking with peers going through similar experiences. These one time 45 minute sessions are capped at 12 students and offer a combination of hands on activities and the opportunity to ask questions and gain advice. Topics range from “How to Talk About Yourself” to “Finding a Job When You Don’t Have Experience” to “Adulting 101.”
