While it's hard to think about your first job when you haven't even been to your first day of class, four years goes by quickly. That's why staff at our Graves Center for Calling and Career will work with you throughout your time at GC, making sure that you are prepared for who you want to BE in addition to what you want to DO with your life. We want to come alongside you to plan intentional plans toward integrating your academic life and life outside the classroom to give you the experiences that will help you be prepared for Life after GC! We’ll be there if you’re feeling stuck in a major that may not fit quite like you expected, to review your resume so it will shine for that first interview and prepare you with the necessary tools for your next season of life. Whether you're going to graduate school or joining the workforce, we have resources to help you succeed.
At the Graves Center for Calling and Career, we can help you explore potential majors through career assessments, including the TypeFocus7. We are always happy to meet with you to discuss your results and help you sift through the information to narrow down your career options. Graves Center for Calling and Career staff also work to connect students with experiential learning opportunities to further their process of career discernment. We have strong relationships with local employers where students can gain experience through internships that they can complete for academic credit.
We believe that first year students should get involved, use the resources available to them, and focus on transitioning successfully to college. This is the best way to prepare you for life after GC and your future career! As you progress through college, we are happy to set up appointments to review your resume, connect you with alumni in your field of interest, and help you grow your network to potential employers.
