For Parents

Office of Career Development

We have a common goal... To see your student be successful in their career. Ideally each student will visit our office to utilize the services and understand the value and benefits offered. That does not mean you need to take a back seat in the process. As a parent, you know that you affect your child's career development and career choice. You also know that the career choices young people make will affect their job satisfaction, where they live, how much they earn, and who their friends are. You will find some helpful resources below that can help guide you as a parent or family member in your student's career development process. Please let us know if you have any questions or need additional information.

You can successfully complete this process with careful thought and reflection. Our hope is that by accessing the services offered through the Office of Career Development you will discover work you have a passion for.
