A Career Planning Course for Parents
Your son or daughter just left for college and does not have a clue as to what he or she wants to major in, let alone choose as a career.  This is not unusual.  Choosing a career is a process students need to go through and they go through the stages of this process at different rates of speed.  The steps include:

  • Assessing skills, interests, and abilities(an important first step to choosing an appropriate career);
  • Exploring majors and career options;
  • Experimenting with possible career options; and
  • Organizing and conducting a job or graduate school search.

Career Planning Timetable
During their first year or so of college, students will be involved in assessing their skills, interests, and abilities.  They will do this through finding success in courses they take, involvement in campus activities, discussions with their friends and faculty, and by being exposed to and trying out differentideas and experiences.
