Here you will find a variety of resources you can use and share with FIG students to help them familiarize themselves with our office while also conducting important career exploration. We suggest you dedicate one week to the topic. 

 

Some activities and suggestions include:

(1.)  Play the "How to Use This Website" video for class. This is a great overview of the numerous resources available online and provides instructions on how to contact our office.

(2.)  Lead FIG students through the True Colors Personality Test activity that you did during FIG Mentor training. Utilize this handout to lead students through this activity.

(3.)  Show students how to utilize Focus 2. This database houses multiple assessments students can take that will provide them suggestions on different careers and industries that may suit them. Students can also explore different professions without taking the assessments. This guide is a helpful tool in using Focus 2.

(4.)  Have them sign into and familiarize themselves with Handshake. Students can make appointments with Career Coaches through this system, but can also find out about upcoming events and apply to various job and internship opportunities, as well. Check out Handshake's Getting Started resources here.
