Why should I enroll for this program?
If you have a student who is entering or in college, you have time to help them take ownership of their career. More than likely, Their college doesn’t require them to invest the time in career management, and as a result the vast majority of grads don’t worry about their career until after they graduate. We think that’s too late.What will the monthly presentations review?
Each month we’ll cover a different topic to give you a foundation and understanding of what your student should be doing in preparing for their career, their freshman, sophomore, junior and senior year. Armed with this knowledge you will be more confident about the advice and the demands you make.
What if I have questions?
We have a Parent Community you can participate in to get advice from other parents who are experiencing the same thing you are. Our career coaches and staff will offer suggestions and advice too.
Do I need special equipment to watch the presentations?
Nope! You can watch the presentations using any browser, at any time with any device. That’s right you watch with your SmartPhone, SmartPad and computer.
Should my student participate in these presentations?
It’s up to you. We have a monthly version designed especially for them, that we think would be more appropriate. These sessions are focused on helping you become confident and comfortable with the role you MUST take to encourage them to take ownership of their career.
Can I stop at any time?
Sure if you are not getting value out of this program, simply cancel. Before you do, let us know what you think is lacking so we can continue to improve the program.
