Not sure where to start or what questions to ask? Don’t panic. We’ve got five topics to discuss with your Career Coach.

1) Career Exploration

Your Career Coach can help you explore your interests and strengths through tools such as CliftonStrengths and O*NET Interest Profiler and point you to online and campus resources. They are knowledgeable in the majors and minors the Eccles School offers and can help you discover the best fit for your career path.

2) Resume Feedback

Career Coaches can review and offer advice on content and formatting, plus suggest internships and jobs that might be a good fit.
