For college freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, the student coaching sessions focus on getting the greatest return on your college investment. Four to five sessions, over the course of one to two months, depending upon how closely they are scheduled together.

  1. Initial Meeting: During which time we explore your goals for career coaching, your interests, personality, values, and what you want out of life.
  2. Assessment Results Interpretation: We meet to review and discuss the findings from your assessment tools.
  3. Exploration of Options: We explore available options in academic majors and careers, based upon your assessments.
  4. Decision-Making: We will facilitate your decision-making process, enabling you to make choices about academic majors and career paths that best match your needs and values. This activity can also make a difference in your choice of college.
  5. Action Plan: Develop a multi-year plan to position you for the entry-level job market, including major selection, internships, activities and soft skills development.

“Before I met with Carolyn, my situation was quite perplexing. I had been out of high school for two years and was still undecided in what career I wanted to pursue. Working with Carolyn helped me start the process to pave the way for a brighter future. I was able to identify goals and define what I wanted out of a career. My experience with Carolyn has been extraordinary. I would recommend anyone that is undecided to contact her and learn what their next step is!”
