Career Action Plan
Career planning … discovering who you are and what you are meant to do … is lifework. It’s a process and a journey, and it's your next challenge. As with most things in life, you'll get out of it what you're willing to put into it. At the Career Center, we’ll help you decipher just what your college experience means in terms of your career options and choices. We'll help you to see how the workplace today is changing, and what employers look for in hiring new candidates. We'll help you know yourself well enough to know where your best fit is, too.
The Career Action Plan (CAP) at the Mount is a four-year program that guides students through a systematic career development process. Highly experiential in nature, the program is based on our belief that work is a "calling," a vocation that gives your life purpose and meaning. Each year of the CAP includes a checklist of suggested activities to develop a student's skills and career readiness.

“I want to send you my biggest thank you this morning; all of your advice and encouragement for my Teach for America interview was so very appreciated. And... it was also worthwhile: I am accepted!!! I was placed in one of my top regions - Eastern North Carolina.
I am more elated than I could put into words via email, but I was eager to tell you and send you my thanks. I could not have made it through that long interview day without your help! “
