CE3 First Generation Career Pathways
First Generation Career Pathways was developed to address the post-graduation career needs of first-generation and low-income students in today's competitive job market. We highlight the career resources and services provided by the Centers for Educational Equity & Excellence (CE3), give unique offerings, as well as collaborate with campus partners to best support the professional development of our students. Career Pathways provides strengths-based and culturally responsive career counseling to CE3 students. We provide our constituents with workshops on key areas of need for first-generation students such as resume review, personal branding, candid career conversations, and Linkedin guidance. Additionally, we connect students to equity-minded external companies and nonprofits organizations to create accessible pipelines for post-graduate resources and opportunities. Finally, Career Pathways offers a semester-long career mentorship and personal branding course to a cohort of 35 students via our new program, Career Connect.
