Parents

Does your son or daughter need advice and information about choosing a major, landing an internship, or exploring careers and/or graduate school?

At the Advising & Career Center, we encourage students to take an active role in their educational and career development. As a parent, you can support your student's efforts by recommending that he or she:

Get involved with activities on campus. Many students identify career interests and gain valuable experience through clubs, activities and volunteering.

Take a variety of courses to explore interests, get to know faculty and become familiar with JSC programs.

Consider internships, part-time jobs and summer employment as ways to explore career interests and build a resume for the future.

Ask for help! While graduation may seem a long way off, students should visit the Advising & Career Center as early as their freshman year for career exploration and advice on choosing a major.
