Planning your career can seem overwhelming, but we want to help you discern the sweet spot between your passions, skills, and gifts to form that into a career that has an impact on the Kingdom.

Informational Interviews are a great way to find out more information about a potential job or industry you are interested in. Reach out to someone working in the field you'd like to explore, or one that you are planning on going in to, and ask them if they have time for a 15 or 30 minute informational interview. Then, you can work through a list of questions. Here's a document that might help get you started developing questions!

Career Coaching consists of sitting down with someone to walk through career advising, internship and job search guidance, and developing your plans for post-graduation. To setup an appointment, e-mail careerservices@ciu.edu.
