A Letter from CDS Executive Director, Brian Love
What a remarkable time we live in and what an especially exciting time to be a student! Citizens traveling into space, self-driving cars, telecommuting, and smart … well smart everything. Our reality has transformed so drastically in just the last several years that young people have more opportunities to do more things in a shorter period of time than any generation in history. You really can do anything or be anything, If you have the imagination and the desire.
Think about it, your parents could not have dreamt of the possibilities for you in your lifetime. Opportunities generated by information and innovation and powered by growing markets and inclusivity. Vast change also brings risk, uncertainty, and anxiety. When transformation is constant, how does one prepare? How many jobs, careers or employers might one have? How does one prepare for the disruption of everything?
The answer: Utilizing curiosity, personal growth, and lifelong learning. At the Career Development Center, we direct and coordinate career-related development services, activities, events, and workshops on campus while establishing experiential business and community partnerships for the College. These services enhance students’ personal growth and professional development through their matriculation and into their career field of choice.
We also provide a forum for ongoing professional development after you’re hired through networking, ongoing professional development workshops, and career services and events. We’re here to assist you and to challenge you as you navigate this exciting new world.
Come and visit us soon at our new digs: Antisdel House (The former President’s House ) next to Stuart, and meet the new team Mrs. Padgett and Ms. Alston.
