What is a Career Educator?
A Career Educator can help you create a personalized career plan designed to meet your goals. You can get advice and information customized specifically to your needs and includes everything from tailoring your resume and cover letter and helping you with your elevator pitch and interviewing skills to researching industries, job roles and careers.
You can meet with a career educator to talk about any number of career-related topics, including resume and cover letter review.
- Search strategies for professional jobs and internships
- Navigating career options
- Practice interviewing with industry-specific questions
- Get help utilizing LinkedIn to build your network
"The one single service that ultimately was most key and the most significant impact towards my future was consistently meeting with a career educator. My career educator was Kathy and she was able to initially guide me through my internship search and process. Through this she helped me realize and discover resources that I did not initially see as resources beneficial towards my future. After that, it opened up a new network and mentoring for me and I was always encouraged to reach out for anything such as editing my resume, breaking down interviewing skills, and general support."
