Work with your career coach to:
1. learn about yourself,
2. identify potentially satisfying career options, and
3. develop your own career plan to achieve your goals.
Start with Focus to learn about yourself and the world of work, then meet your career coach to help you explore and grow your ideas.
Understanding yourself is essential to choosing a major/career. Career Services offers a variety of career self-assessment tools and resources that can help you transform what you know about yourself into educational and occupational goals.

PSY 1220 Career & Life Planning
The purpose of this course is to enable the student to explore the various aspects of self and environment as they relate to establishing educational and career objectives.
A large part of the course will focus on self-assessment and value clarification. These processes will provide a foundation on which one may engage in career planning and decision making. Since most topics are personal issues, the class will of necessity be informal. Students are encouraged to use class time as a human relations laboratory. Careful listening, reflective thinking, and spontaneous responding are encouraged.
In addition, course assignments will include, career assessments, formal/informal papers, informational interviews, and a final exam.
