The Graduate School of Education (GSE) will offer six-week career counseling sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, beginning March 25 and March 26. Sessions start at 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30 p.m. in Robinson Hall B, Room A353.

Students in GSE’s Counseling and Development Program will offer professional and structured career counseling to members of the community at a reasonable cost. The program is aimed at individuals who are seeking help with career and educational planning or goal setting, and adults wishing to resolve career-related decisions.

Participants receive an intake assessment session in the week before beginning the 50-minute individual career-counseling sessions. Sessions include the Myers Briggs Type Indicator interest inventory and other assessments of personality characteristics, interest, work values, and skills, as well as an exploration of options compatible with personal preferences and characteristics.

The program has been around for nearly 20 years, offering clients significant attention and access to the most widely respected career-related instruments at a reasonable price. Diana Gibb and Catherine McCormick, instructors in GSE, supervise the sessions.

Cost of the sessions is $35 for George Mason students, faculty, staff, their family members, and high school students; $50 for George Mason alumni; and $85 for individuals outside of George Mason. Fees are nonrefundable. Registration details and forms are available on the GSE web site. For more information, contact Gibb at (703) 993-2087 or dgibb@gmu.edu.
