CAREER ADVISING PROMISES

There is always fine print-- here's ours:

Your Promise to Us:

  1. Communicate, in both written and verbal forms, with the Career Development Office staff in the same way you would with an employer-- a high level of professionalism is expected. If you do not know what this means, please ask us for guidance.
  2. Come prepared to each appointment with questions or materials for discussion.
  3. Though we know emergencies come up, due to the high volume of requests for appointments, the Career Development Office asks for a 24-hour appointment cancellation notice so that another student or alumni may use that time. Call or email the office, and if you will be more than 15 minutes late, your advisor may have to reschedule the appointment based on availability.
  4. Be active in the advising process-- ask questions when you do not understand a concept, task, or method.
  5. Keep a record of your progress toward meeting your goals and bring it with you to every advising session.
  6. Be open to developing and clarifying your professional interests, skills, values, and goals.
  7. Research career fields and opportunities as appropriate.
  8. Accept responsibility for your decisions, behaviors and consequences.
  9. Report your career successes to the Career Development Office by calling us at 312-261-3270 or by emailing us at careerdevelopment@nl.edu -- we look forward to hearing from you!

Our Promise to You:

  1. Be dedicated to the advising process and exhibit a caring attitude toward advisees.
  2. Communicate, in both written and verbal forms, with students and alumni advisees with respect and a high level of professionalism. We do this to model what is expected of students/alumni in the workplace and all professional settings.
