    As students travel the road of professional development, we know it is helpful for them to have input from others and to also discover direction for themselves.

    College is a time of growth for students; they need to learn how to move forward on their own and embrace individual potential. Career Advising fosters forward momentum by connecting students with available opportunities, strategies, and career pathways. Our goals and overall mission are reflected in REPP, where we encourage students to Reflect, Explore, Prepare and Pursue connections to achieve professional goals. Families can support students by encouraging them to engage with Career Advising and access the resources and support available in our office.

    Career Advising works with your student to foster REPP. The initial step - Reflect - happens when students think about experiences, the impact of the experiences, and how individual professional and personal development is affected. Throughout their years at Le Moyne College your student is on a journey, and Career Advising works to facilitate the learning and skill development necessary to support reflection which creates forward movement and growth. As a parent or family member, it is important for you to hear what your student is telling you about their progress. It is important for you to know when to step in and add additional support and when to let your student learn independently. It is also important to encourage your student to take part in campus activities, search out experiential learning opportunities (job shadowing, internships, research opportunities, and more), and take advantage of all that awaits them. Through it all, your student should be taking time to Reflect on their professional growth.


    The next step in REPP is Explore. Career Advising fosters exploration through the resources we offer both in our office and on line. Encourage your student to visit our offices and meet our staff. Students should also access our webpages to connect with resources to augment their professional development. We are open Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm in Reilly Hall 342. 

     

    Students can also explore opportunities by logging into Handshake. Their Le Moyne email address automatically links to a Handshake account. Once logged in, they can search opportunities, see upcoming Career Advising events, and make appointments with our career counselors. They can also email us directly at careers@lemoyne.edu

     

    Le Moyne is a place where students should connect with opportunities on campus as well; encourage your student to engage with clubs, campus events, recreational, artistic, and creative opportunities. Campus involvement and leadership is something future employers look for in prospective employees.


    Career Advising is also available to students as they take the next step in REPP and Prepare to make connections with opportunities and facilitate achievement of professional goals. In addition to offering resume reviews, mock interviews, graduate school application reviews, access to Handshake, and more, the Career Advising office recognizes LinkedIn as an excellent tool to connect with other professionals, search potential jobs, and create a dynamic online image. Our LinkedIn guide helps students create and then navigate their account, maintain their professional profile, and help them capitalize on potential connections and job opportunities. Encourage your student to utilize our LinkedIn Guide to create and maintain a strong presence on-line as part of preparing a professional presence. 

    The final stage of REPP is Pursue. This stage allows your student's reflection, exploration, and preparation to be put to use and provide results. Students who have connected with Career Advising and utilized our myriad of resources will find pursuing possibilities to be exciting and empowering. REPP fosters professional growth while also connecting students with skills and resources they can use well beyond their years here on campus. 

    With the preparation REPP provides, student pursue opportunities that feel rewarding, cogent, and relevant.

    Students should pursue a major which engenders passion within them. Know that majors do not necessarily determine future success or job placements, and the ability to do well in a content area and the resulting success in classes and projects can determine future success. If a student excels in an area of study because of affinity with the content, the knowledge and skills developed in that major can be applied to a number of different careers. Additionally, engaged students are more likely to perform better academically, and academic successes are viewed highly by future employers. With the coursework departments provide, students are given the intellectual training necessary to succeed post-graduation.


    Keep in mind certain professional fields do require specific courses to meet certifications and requirements (pre-med, nursing, accounting, engineering, for example), but these programs can be combined with major and/or minors in other areas to supplement a student’s desire to explore more fully their college academic and pre-professional experience.

    We are always looking for opportunities for our students to gain practical, real-world experience in the workplace. If you are interested in hosting or hiring a Le Moyne student in your workplace, please call our office at (315) 445-4185, email us at careers@lemoyne.edu, or create a Handshake account here
