Career Planning Course for Parents

Choosing a career is a process students (and adults!) need to go through--and students go through the stages of this process at different rates of speed. The steps include:

1. Assessing skills, interests, and abilities
(this is an important first step to choosing an appropriate career)
2. Exploring majors and career options;
3. Experimenting with possible career options; and
4. Organizing and conducting a job or graduate school search.
