To get the most out of your experience with our office, we highly recommend that you schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of the counselors to start the conversation about your professional development and career path. Our dedicated staff will help you carve out a 4-year plan to begin your career development. The students that regularly meet with Career Education counselors will tell you that their one-on-one conversations are pivotal to making progress and determining their professional calling. We enjoy working with all students, from freshmen to seniors, alumni and beyond. We will help you discover and reach your goals.
You can do anything with a degree from Hampden-Sydney College
