Families can play a significant role in guiding students in their career decision-making. You can support their career exploration by encouraging them to visit the Career Center early and often.
One of the top reasons students attend colleges and universities is to get a job when they graduate.The Career Center offers a variety of resources that help students navigate the shift from academics to the world of work beginning in their first year. These resources include career counseling; career assessments; a career and life planning course (GENL 121); resume and cover letter reviews; a job and internship database called Hire@TU; mock interviews; job and career fairs; events and workshops; and a career mentor database.
Towson University offers over 60 undergraduate majors, more than 40 master's programs and several doctoral programs, so students have lots of choices! Volunteer and internship experiences are avenues to investigate professional opportunities and build a strong resume. Allowing your students to explore majors and careers is a great way to help them develop confidence in their choices and their ability to make smart career decisions.
