Searching for a career or major? Don't know where to start? Career Resource advisors have programs to help. They can assist students with career exploration through the career resource library, career fairs, career counseling and the Self-Directed Search program.
Exploratory/Undecided students are encouraged to visit a career advisor for assistance in choosing a career before they are blocked from class registration by the 45-Hour Credit Policy.
Students can get help with selecting a major and identifying careers that suit their personality-type and professional goals. In addition to one-on-one counseling, Career Resources provides classroom presentations to FYE classes on a variety of career related topics. Please contact Sally Fadorsen, Coordinator of Career Resources (individual students) or Rob Brindley, Coordinator of Career Planning (groups) to begin your exploration today!
Career Fairs are another valuable way Kent State Tuscarawas provides hands-on methods for career exploration. These events include an Engineering Expo during National Engineers Week of February each year and a Nursing Career Opportunities fair in the spring.
The Self-Directed Search (SDS) is a personality assessment that assists students in pinpointing career options based on their personal interests. Students can also access Kent State's Career Services Center resources via the "Student Career Path" tab on Flashline. Information is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week from any computer. Be sure to check out MyPlan and Collage for career guidance and trends.
