Welcome parents, family and friends from Geneva College Career Development! Our passion is to help students live their calling daily while helping them to explore their life′s purpose. God reveals to us that “…we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10
Our message to you would be that you support your family member in exploring options, rather than narrowing them. That you encourage them to get related experience toward their direction. That you partner with them in their preparation for life after graduation. Calling is ‘daily stewardship′ so their direction will unfold daily. Geneva College seeks to engage our students each step in their journey.
Our department serves the students in many ways. We offer two signature programs:
Career Assessments to help students discover their calling, and
Events helps students begin the transition from college to career.
We encourage you to peruse the many services, programs and events on our web site. Drop in or contact us anytime!
The CDC is available to prospective students, current students, and alumni. We welcome parents into the career advising process with the consent of the student. We recommend that students utilize our services each year. See our annual checklist for students here.
The liberal arts majors are very portable. See our “what can I do with my major” and www.onetonline.org for starter ideas. We also highly recommend our career assessment to aid the student in determining vocational direction.
We recommend our career assessment along with an career advising and academic advising appointment. It is important that our students are in majors that are compatible with their academic and vocational interests. They will excel most when studying a major that interests them.
Our office offers career assessments, career advising appointments, academic advising appointments, occupational resources, and practice interviews.
Ensure the student is doing well academically and is studying a compatible major. We encourage the student to get involved on campus and to consider a part-time job and/or internship to build employment history. We also encourage students to use the CDC′s programs, services, and resources—especially Geneva Job Link and Geneva LinkedIn.
