At Beacon College, students follow the four-year Career Development Model. They learn about their values, strengths, career interests, and work attitudes.
The model’s next phase engages students in career exploration, options, and job-shadowing experiences. Through this, students explore different occupations in their chosen career field.
By the third year, students work on goal setting with timelines, internships/field experiences with performance feedback, and workplace communication.
In their senior year, students continue working on internships/field experiences, resume-building, interviewing skills, and job-search strategies.
Our model contributes to a successful transition from college to the workplace or graduate school.
