Jennifer believes that the college search process begins and ends with the individual student. Consideration of academic institutions commences only after in-depth discussions with the student and evaluation of the students’ interests, past activities, values, personality and goals has occurred. John Holland’s model of Personality and Career Match is just one of the tools used when discussing college and career options. She also encourages students to maintain an open mind throughout the selection process as over 50% of students change their intended majors prior to college graduation.
This process is an opportunity for improved development of personal skills and a greater understanding of self. What it should not be is stressful. Above all else? It should be empowering and fun!
