Welcome, Parents!

 

The Education Department and Grove City College are dedicated to the career and professional development of your child.  A tangible indication of our commitment is the inclusion of a career services professional, specifically, for elementary and secondary education students.  Education Career Services (ECS) is located conveniently in the Education Department within a suite of faculty offices.  As a result, your son/daughter has convenient access to the Associate Director for individual appointments.  Embedding ECS within the Education Department, allows the Associate Director to collaborate with faculty and to integrate career and professional development into the academic preparation of education students.

 

Students are encouraged to meet with the Associate Director of ECS during their freshman year to begin building a four-year career development program that includes self-awareness, career exploration, experiential opportunities and preparation for the transition to employment or graduate study.  To discuss more about ECS, we invite you to peruse the ECS website and contact Deborah Snyder, Associate Director.

 

As a parent, you have a significant role in supporting your child's career preparation.  Please encourage your son/daughter to visit ECS-- your encouragement makes a difference!

 

To further assist you, our professional career development association offers some helpful articles for parents.  Here are some links to the National Association of Colleges and Employers' (NACE) Jobweb.  You'll find the "Information for Parents" quite relevant.  Here are some highlights under "Careers 411":

Best wishes as you travel alongside your son/daughter.  I look forward to working with your student.  If you have any questions, please contact me.
