Your purpose is fueled by your natural skills, passions and values. As a Linfield student, you will be constantly identifying new aspects of who you are as you participate in diverse college courses, study abroad programs, internships, athletics and more. We are here to help you purposefully target these activities and provide opportunities for you to explore and discover your unique self with the goal of finding meaningful work that serves a greater purpose to the world around you.
Contact us at 503-883-2733 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a one-on-one meeting with Career Development to explore subjects like:
- Discovering direction and exploring options in both college and the future
- Asking larger questions of personal and unique meaning and purpose
- Recognizing your values and interests that define who you are
- Evaluating Your unique strengths and skills that you contribute to the world
During Jan Term break, students will have the opportunity to select job areas of interest based on prior vocational exploration and individually visit professionals in their place of work. They will spend time observing the work environment, interviewing authorities in their field of interest, and reflecting on the impact of the externship experience on their vocational journey.
In collaboration with Academic Advising, additional programming and resources will be available to assist all Linfield sophomores in discovering and selecting their academic major. In order to increase student self-awareness and intentionality during the major selection process, Career Development will be offering hosted small group interactions, discussions with professional speakers and panelists, and individual advising sessions looking at the Academic Declaration process through a vocational/calling lens.
