Getting work experience is great. It provides not only income but opportunities to develop and enhance the skills needed to succeed in full-time, professional-level careers. It also allows your student to 'try out' various career areas prior to completing her/his college degree.
But between school, family / friends, and employment, it's no surprise that career planning may not be first and foremost on your student's mind. That's why PSU Advising & Career Services is asking your help. We would like you to encourage your student to use our services and resources when:
- Seeking part-time student jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities.
- Trying to decide on a major.
- Selecting a career path.
- Searching for full-time professional-level employment.
- Preparing for graduate or professional school.
Please contact us at askACS@pdx.edu if you have any questions.
Advising & Career Services is dedicated to helping students get from where they are now to where they want to be.
