Welcome back to another semester at the Mount! I hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing winter break and that the first week of classes went well. Each year, the Career Center looks for new ways to assist students in their major and career exploration, and the 2014 New Year is no exception. As this spring semester begins, the Career Center will be starting a new initiative: the Peer Career Advising Program.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this new program, the Peer Career Advising Program involves career coaching, which focuses on forging partnerships with students and providing support. There are several other colleges and universities in the surrounding area that also have this program, and the Career Center has researched those schools and their programs while individualizing the Peer Career Advising program to best benefit the Mount community. The Career Center hopes that this program will be both successful and beneficial to students.
