Career Counseling

CPDI’s customized, one-on-one counseling services and group-based professional development programs is to help you plan for your future -- a task which becomes increasingly more difficult and complex with the rapid changes in the economy and the job market.
The career planning process consists of the following activities: 
  • Self-awareness: learning about yourself, your interests, abilities, personality and decision-making style, key work needs, and options 
  • Educational and career exploration and research: learning about the world of work, researching majors and career options; exploring campus, community and internship 
  • Job search: a proactive job search campaign which includes resume & cover letter preparation, interviewing, evaluating options by matching goals & values to job offers. 

CPDI staff is ready to assist you along the way by providing career education, resources and support.
