For Parents

Linking College to Careers

parents with their childrenWe have a common goal to see your student become career ready.  Ideally each student will visit our office to utilize the services and understand the value and benefits offered.  Realistically that might or might not happen.  National research indicates that only 5% of entering freshmen think they need career assistance.  That does not mean you need to take a back seat in the process.  You will find some helpful resources below that can help guide you as a parent in your child's career development process.  We know that you are your student's greatest supporter and we hope the information on this website will help advise and coach your student in his or her career exploration. 

Please feel free to contact us at 609-652-4650 if you have questions or need additional information.
