The Graduate School of Education (GSE) is offering six weeks of career counseling sessions beginning March 16. The six 50-minute sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30 p.m. in Robinson Hall A, Room 353.

Eligible participants for career counseling sessions include:

  • High school juniors or seniors seeking help with educational and career planning
  • College students selecting a major or establishing career goals
  • Adults considering career choice or change, continuing education, reentry into the job market, displacement, or retirement planning

Counseling sessions are provided by advanced GSE students under the supervision of a university instructor. After registration, participants attend an intake assessment session preceding weekly meetings. Counseling sessions include an assessment of personality characteristics, interests, work values and skills, and an exploration of options compatible with personal preferences and characteristics. Participants will receive assessment tests to better understand their career potential.

The sessions are $50 for the Mason community, family members, and alumni, and $100 for individuals not affiliated with the university. Fees are nonrefundable. For registration forms, visit the GSE Career Counseling web site. Advance registration is required and space is limited.
