Career Center- Career Accelerator

Career Accelerator is a 3.5 day pre-fall program involving career exploration, career treks, and a day of service in the Baltimore community. By the end of the program, students will be able to identify their interests, values, and strengths; articulate what the career exploration process involves; demonstrate the roles that their own self-attributes play in their career exploration; construct a basic resume and a plan for next steps; cultivate a peer network of other students in similar career phases; and recognize the value of serving others as a foundational career theme.

Career Center- Discover Everywhere Micro-Retreat

Discover Everywhere is a flexible “micro-retreat” designed by the Career Center to give students a space to think about their  interests, values, and skills, and how these might influence your major or career decisions.  You will have the opportunity to think about the factors that affect your decisions, so you feel more confident with their next steps – whether that’s declaring a major, or realizing they need to gather more information. Please visit the Career Centers Learning Objectives page for more details.
