What do I want to be when I grow up? What jobs are available for my major? Will this occupation make me happy? What career fields will best match my interests, skills and values?
Is one of your family members currently searching for answers to these questions? Is your immediate reaction a desire to fix, resolve and provide answers? As appealing as it is to want to resolve these questions, the answers must ultimately come from the individual. This being said, the support and guidance from outside sources such as career counselors, advisors, mentors and family members can make a positive impact on the success of this process. We are happy that you are interested in and supportive of your family member. Included in this webpage are a variety of resources which we hope will help you understand the services available to students through Career Services at CSS as well as resources that may be especially helpful for you as a family member. If there is additional information you would find useful, feel free to contact us with your suggestions.
