Academic excellence is often a pursuit that puts students in the race to get good grades, making them so engrossed in their activities that they dangerously ignore the importance of orienting themselves towards a career path. Due to the preconceived notions students have regarding the career path that will be best for them in their professional lives, most students tend to enroll in programs that are biased towards those career paths.
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 Counseling 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.
