"Going through the steps of accomplishing the Career Exploration Certificate has made me feel more prepared for a future job/internship!  Being able to participate and learn interesting concepts through informative workshops has been super beneficial for me as my main goal was to build up my core values and be able to apply them.  I highly recommend engaging in this program, because not only will it set you apart and shine on your resume, but it focuses on helping college students transition into the working life and gain confidence.  Bonus: it's a free program & certificate."
