Keys for Career Exploration Webinar

September 4, 2015

Mark your calendars for Monday, September 14, at 8 p.m. EDT and plan to join us for our first FREE webinar of the year — “Keys for Career Exploration.” 

Statistics tell us that 50–60% of college students will change their major at least once, and 40% get to graduation day and regret their choice. And consider this: 65–85% of American adults say they dislike their job. 

So how do you help your student choose the right major? How can you prevent your son or daughter from becoming another statistic? “Keys for Career Exploration” will introduce you to what you need to know as you help your student with this all-important decision.

Cedarville University’s Director of Career Services and Certified Professional Career Coach Jeff Reep will discuss how students can engage in career exploration early and often. Without it, college freshmen choose majors based on vague ideas of future lifestyle, but without true knowledge of their options or of the ways God has equipped them to serve His purposes. A college education is a significant investment and selecting a major is a significant choice.

Join us for this informative webinar that is sure to help you as you work through the decision about major and career selection with your student. Register today, and then plan to join us on Monday, September 14, at 8 p.m.!
