Parent Resources

Sending a student to college is a major life event for families as well as students, and it is important to think about career development and how to improve your student’s chances of obtaining a job after graduation.

Researchers have found that close relationships with family help students adjust to college life, make effective career and relationship choices, and develop self-confidence and a sense of personal autonomy, all important attributes to successful career planning and development.

Therefore, we believe it is critical for parents to understand, support, and encourage their students to take advantage of the opportunities available to them in the Career Center.
