Some clients are beginning new careers and looking for opportunities to enter the job market, while other clients are mid-career professionals looking to continue their careers while better protecting their mental health.
For clients beginning their careers, Career Services may begin by helping them identify their strengths and interests though tools such as the Strong Interest Inventory. Results of these assessments may help clients select a career path and establish a series of smaller steps to help them achieve a longer-term career goal. Group and individual sessions may focus on topics like cultivating early professionalism, developing a portfolio, managing relationships with coworkers and supervisors, and setting appropriate financial expectations and budgeting goals for the early career phase.
For mid-career professionals, Career Services may be more focused on helping clients improve work-life balance, combat burn-out or boredom, or address specific challenges like public speaking, communicating with supervisors, or asking for accommodations when needed.
