The Graduate School of Education (GSE) offers career-counseling sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting Oct. 17 and Oct. 22. Sessions begin at 4:30, 5:30 or 6:30 p.m. in Robinson Hall, Room 353.

The goal of this program is for advanced graduate students to offer professional and structured career counseling to members of the community at a reasonable cost. It is aimed at students who are seeking help with career and educational planning or goal setting. Adults wishing to resolve career-related decisions would also benefit from these sessions. Participants will receive one intake assessment session and six 50-minute individual career-counseling sessions. Counseling sessions include assessments of personality characteristics, interest, work values, skills, and an exploration of options compatible with personal preferences and characteristics.

Cost of the session is $25 for George Mason students, faculty, staff, and their family members; 50 for George Mason alumni; and $85 for individuals outside of George Mason, ($70 for registration by Sept. 16). Fees are nonrefundable. Verification of affiliation with George Mason or other schools is requested.

Registration details and forms are available on the GSE web site. For more information, contact Diana Gibb at (703) 993-2087.
