Facilitated by a career counselor. 

Through individual and group reflective activities, students will be able to identify their academic and career strengths and then get to practice leveraging their strengths. New this year, this session will intentionally tie together concepts of strengths and resilience by providing opportunities for students to problem-solve around life and career decisions.  To prepare for their session, students should complete the Canvas Strengths Prep Course prior to the session.  Link to course will be provided.

*If you have specific requests, or a topic you want to emphasize (i.e. linking to another assignment your students are working on, including CareerLink, or helping students write a resume), just ask.
