One of the most common questions when meeting someone is, "So...what do you do?" Whether we like it or not, we tend not to be defined by our passions or values but instead by our major or job title. So, when we stop and think about it...
"Do our career paths really engage our interests, passions and natural abilities or do we leave a part of ourselves back at home?"
"Do we have the clarity as to who we really are and what makes us unique or is our identity just a distorted reflection of vocational pursuits and our meeting the expectations others
have assigned for us?"
Students want an objective method to know and understand "what" their inborn talents are and "how" those abilities can be used to support and build a meaningful career they will love. They also want a subjective understanding of "why" academic pursuits are worth the effort, an authentication that reflects a distinctive sense of themselves.
CCI guides students through both an objective and subjective inquiry, to construct their own pathway, understanding themselves and how they fit into a career path through a process that reveals their vocational identity. This integrates:
