Take students on Career Tours at your school
While time intensive, this experience is extremely rewarding experience for all involved.
Career Tours offer students:
SOLID INFORMATION AND ADVICE
The opportunity to talk with professionals and get questions answered is the foundation of this experience. We have a lot of opportunities via technology to connect, but there is something powerful about going in person and seeing work environments up close; all while getting advice from a variety of perspectives on how to find work that is satisfying for you.
REASSURANCE ABOUT THE FUTURE
One of the biggest takeaways students have from this experience is that nothing is set in stone, there are many different opportunities to find work you enjoy. They also noticed that your college major isn't the "end all be all factor in your success."
EXPANsion of HORIZONS
In a thoughtful way, students are exposed to additional opportunities that they have not yet considered. We have notions of what different jobs entail, but the opportunity to go more into depth with the professionals who do them every day allows students to make connections and consider possibilities they might not have realized were available to them.
