Career Services and CAPS Programming

Looking for a job or internship can be stressful.  Asking yourself big questions about what you want to do “with the rest of your life” can feel weighty and challenging at times.  Working with a career advisor at Career Services or seeing a counselor at CAPS can help with the natural stress and uneasiness that comes with job searching.  In addition to individual appointments, did you know that Career Services and CAPS collaborate on programing geared toward your job search?  Both Career Services and CAPS fall under the umbrella of the Vice President for University Life, and so it is only natural that we work together.  Below is a sampling of the programming we have scheduled for the fall semester; register today for a topic of interest!

Participating in any of these workshops will provide you with tools to develop career readiness competencies that will be valuable as you transition from the academic environment to your professional life, including:

  • Building personal and professional development strategies and goals
  • Managing stress and balancing work/life commitments
  • Identifying and expressing your values, skills, and strengths

These workshops cover a wide range of information on self-exploration and career development, including three tools that Career Services and CAPS offer to students:

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI): provides a foundation for understanding individual differences and preferences, and applying that understanding to the ways people think, communicate, and interact. This tool identifies your basic “personality type” which can be related to future career choices & working environments.

Strong Interest Inventory: reflects your interests in relation to occupations. Compares your interests to the interests of people happily employed in a wide variety of occupations and identifies job titles related to your interests. Understanding your Strong Profile can help you identify a career focus and begin your career planning and exploration process. This assessment is ideal for undergraduate and Master’s students.

CliftonStrengths: identifies your strengths and relates them to your educational and career plans. Helps you gain insight into your areas of greatest potential.  CliftonStrengths is not a career assessment and will not tell you what career you pursue, but can provide valuable information about who you are and the type of work environments in which you are most likely to thrive.

Students will need to register for these programs in order to complete the free assessments prior to the workshop. To see a complete list of workshops and to register, visit:
