Career Advising is an important component of academic advising. Advisors assist students in developing short-term goals that align with students’ long-term dreams and goals. Career Advising is a process that will help you to know and understand yourself and the world of work in order to make educational, career and life decisions.
Career development is more than just deciding on a major and what job you want to get when you graduate. It really is a lifelong process, meaning that throughout your life you will change, situations will change, and you will continually have to make career and life decisions. The goal of Career Advising is to not only help you make the decisions you need to make now, but to give you the knowledge and skills you need to make future career and life decisions.
