How College Students Really Feel About Career Centers

Bookmark and Share

I came across an article in which students were interviewed to determine what they thought about career services. The responses were very interesting and I wanted to share them with you.

What I found the most interesting was that the students who made negative comments regarding the value of career centers had little to no knowledge of what a career center really has to offer. Many students who actually visit their career centers (as we all know that there are many more who don’t take advantage of them) expect to walk out with a job. They don’t realize that the career center is not just about having job listings available, but instead serve to prep the student for interviews and life after college in the workplace. It is crucial for students to understand that they need to learn these skills, especially for the tough job market they will face once they graduate. Click here to read their responses.
