For Parents

At the Career Center we encourage students to explore and understand their strengths, interests, and values and consider where they overlap to help them focus on finding a job or career they will do well in and enjoy.  The sooner students start to reflect on why education is relevant to their lives after college, the better. 

Many students choose to attend a liberal arts college because they have a variety of talents, skills, and interests; consequently, many have difficulty determining a major and an after-college direction. Learn more about how to keep your student on track.

Liberal arts majors have skills that are in demand—and they can qualify for many different kinds of jobs.
