What is a Meaningful Career Conversation?

A career conversation is the interactive and dynamic process of supporting an individual to identify, prepare for, and pursue a career path that is well suited to their needs, interests and aptitudes.

Advisees might need support in:

  • Identifying skills, interests, and aptitudes
  • Exploring career possibilities and analyzing economic opportunities
  • Identifying solutions to challenges
  • Preparing for the individualized steps required to enter a job or education program

A career conversation has no specific duration – it can take place over the course of an hour, months, or a lifetime.
