Help Your Student Be Career Ready – Let your student make his/her own choices. You may want to have your student study a program that will render good employment opportunities in a particular area to ensure future success. However, the reality is, there is no such thing as guaranteed placement after graduation. Your student must develop his/her own career directions based on their individual interests, skills and values. Encourage your student to pursue something that reflects who he of she is; then the success will come.
