Welcome to Career Development
Simply earning a bachelor’s degree is not enough to launch your profession. For the wind to be in the sails of your career you will want to explore your interests, values and strengths as well as the markets you are interested in.
During your time here at Erskine discover the interests, strengths, and values which uniquely make you who you are. Explore two questions: What are you interested in doing? What are you good at doing?
Know the Market
It is not enough for you to just know who you are and how God has designed and gifted you. You also need to explore the market(s) that interest you. Ask two questions: Can you make a living doing the job you are interested in? Is it a legitimate industry that fits your values?
We Can Help
Our office has a variety of resources to help you explore these questions. Please schedule a time to meet with me.
