First-Year Student Career Counseling
First-Year Career Counseling seeks to engage students in professional development from the very beginning of their collegiate career. Our counseling starts by supporting students regarding their choice of major as it relates to their interests and career goals. As they then begin to immerse themselves in academics, extracurricular activities, and civic engagement, we encourage reflection on their involvement and illustrate methods to effectively and professionally communicate their experiences to others.
Students who engage in First-Year Career Counseling will also build and polish their professional documents, learn about effective networking techniques to help them explore different careers, and understand how to grow a professional network. By mastering these objectives, students will be better prepared for all professional opportunities they will encounter during their time at Rosemont.
