The Office of Career Exploration & Development and The Gilpatrick Center for Student Research & Fellowships empower students to integrate their liberal arts education in achieving a lifetime of personal and professional fulfillment. We provide programs, partnerships and resources that guide career exploration and promote students’ ability to live, work, and lead in a complex world.
One of the most valuable things parents can do to help a student with career planning is listen: be open to ideas, try to help your student find information, and be nonjudgmental.
Get connected to Career Exploration & Development as we work together to ensure that students reach their career and graduate/professional school aspirations.
Although we publicize and market our services to students, we can be more effective if we partner to advocate for the importance of career preparation. Encourage them to take advantage of the services we offer by communicating the benefits of utilizing our office from the time they begin at Denison.
Increase student opportunities and education by providing internships and full-time jobs for Denison students. And, if you are a Denison alum, you may want to consider hosting a current student as an extern. Parents can also participate by providing their own knowledge and experience about a professional career or industry by presenting a workshop.
