Student Outcomes

In the 2011-2012 academic year, 213 students completed a Career Education course.  Each student enrolled in a CE course is given a My Vocational Situation (MVS) assessment at the beginning and end of the course to assess readiness for career choice in terms of vocational identity, need for career information, and barriers to career choice. MVS results are overwhelmingly positive and higher across the board upon completion of a CE course.

What students are saying about our Career Education courses

“Before taking this class I was not sure as to what I wanted to major in and what I wanted to do as a career.  After taking this class, now I know what I want to major in and what a potential job I would like.  This class showed me what I am interested in and what I am good at.  Now with working at all my short term and long term goals, I can follow the right path and succeed.”  –CE 111 Fall 2011 student

“Thank you for all of the help with my resume, finding a job, and deciding what to do after I graduate.  I really enjoyed taking your class.  I will be in touch.”  –CE 131 Spring 2012 student

“Hi, I wanted you to be one of the first people to know that I got a job at Amerimark!  I start the day after graduation.  I wanted to let you know because you have helped me along my journey into the “real world.”  Thank you for all your help!  Personally, I think all seniors should be required to take your class.  Thanks again.”  –CE 131 Spring 2012 student

“This course should be mandatory for all Psych Majors.  Most beneficial class I’ve taken here at JCU – such a helpful class and will recommend to many.”  –CE 122 Spring 2012 student

“This class was very helpful and should be something all freshmen should take – maybe make it an FYS option?”  -CE 101 Spring 2012 student
