Career Exploration & Development
In keeping with the mission of Greensboro College, Career Services views career development as encompassing personal, educational, professional and spiritual dimensions. We help students and alumni develop life skills that can be used to make positive contributions wherever they live and work. We challenge students and alumni to develop self-awareness by identifying their interests, abilities, skills, gifts, values, preferences, strengths, weaknesses, life’s purpose, and to have a personal vision for the future. We emphasize employability and adaptability throughout a lifetime.
Career Services assists students and alumni with:
