Faculty: ENGAGE WITH US!

Please send students to Career Development & Exploration if they are: 

  • Exploring interests and potential careers

  • Wondering what they can do with their major

  • Interested in applying for internships and jobs

  • In need of developing interpersonal skills

  • Struggling to describe their strengths and skills

HERE ARE ADDITIONAL WAYS TO ASSIST STUDENTS...
 
ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR CAREER COACHING

Career coaching is free for current undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni of Cleveland State University. It is available in two formats: "walk-in hours" with a Peer Advisor, or an in-depth, scheduled appointment with a professional Career Development & Exploration staff member.

Career coaching provides help with a wide range of items from career exploration to planning for a job search. We can advise on action steps, and its also a source of resources, tactics and strategies.
