What is career coaching?

Career coaching is guiding the student in planning and managing their career. The focus of career coaching is future-oriented where students are in the driver's seat. The career coach will ask lots of questions to help the student develop a manageable action plan. To ease the feeling of being overwhelmed, the meetings will be about 30 minutes in length. A student is allowed to meet with a career coach multiple times as long as the student is meeting the action steps they set.

Does this sound like what you need? If so, email Jean Drasgow at jdrasgow@illinois.edu.
