As we begin a new year, the Career Planning team continues to listen and we know many students are feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about their career or professional development plans while the world responds to the pandemic and the resulting economic impact. We know that many faculty and staff across campus support student career decision making in both formal and informal ways. OCP is committed to providing you with quality, current resources to inform these conversations. Below you will find a number of resources that you may draw on at any time. As always, career counselors are available for consultation by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Students may schedule an appointment directly via Handshake. Later this month, look for communication highlighting what we know about hiring trends and how they may impact our graduating class.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resources for Career Conversations & Job Search
Individual identities, values, and goals are an essential part of career and professional development planning. OCP has curated career resources and tools for students of diverse identities including BIPOC, LGBTQIA, disabled, international, veterans, adult students, etc. Visit the Showcasing Diversity page under Career Planning on MyMeredith for links to all resources. This page also features tips for evaluating the inclusiveness of a particular workplace.
