Parents

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!
