Parents & Family

How can I get involved with the Nevada Career Studio?

As parents and family members, you are very invested in the collegiate lives of your student. You may hear your daughters and sons discuss their career aspirations as they share their thoughts about possible majors, internships, study abroad options, graduate school, and post-college employment. You offer your advice, whenever possible, to help them as they weigh their options.

We would like to ask you to partner with us in support of your student and all the students in the Nevada community. We want to help students learn about the many different career options that they can explore. As we all know, careers are built over the course of a life-time. Please consider sharing your time, career expertise, and knowledge with us in any of the following ways: developing internships and job opportunities and participating on career panels. Contact the Career Studio if you are interested in helping the Nevada Career Studio in any way.

How can I support my Nevada senior in his or her job search?

The senior year is when organizing and conducting a job search or graduate school search begins in earnest. It is also a time when students are heavily involved in more advanced courses and often have more responsible roles in campus and/or volunteer activities. Balancing these important pursuits and setting priorities is a constant challenge for seniors.

You are probably anxious for this young adult to make a decision-and yet, he or she may be moving toward closure more slowly than you would wish.

What you can do to help:

  • Suggest that he or she use the campus career center throughout the senior year. These offices provide assistance in preparation for the job search. Offerings may include:
    • Workshops and individual help with resume and cover letter writing, interviewing, and other
    • job-search skills, 
    • Individual and group career advising, 
    • Job-search resources, 
    • On-campus interviewing opportunities, and, 
    • Alumni career consultant or mentor programs. 
  • Don't nag your child about not having a job yet. This will often have the reverse effect. Use positive reinforcement. 
  • Offer to assist by sending information you may have found about your child's target career field and/or job listings that may be of interest. Listen for indications from your child that you are getting carried away-and back off. 
  • Don't call potential employers to intervene for your child. Contact with potential employers is the candidate's responsibility. 
  • Be prepared to support your child through the ups and downs of the job and graduate school search. It can be a bumpy road-not every desired job or graduate school acceptance will come through. Your student will need reassurance that for every door that closes, another opens.
