Upper-level bachelor’s and masters students have access to a full range of services and resources at BEAM, from one-on-one career coaching and alumni mentoring to cover letter and resume workshops.
Engage with us in these ways:
These career-community building opportunities engage students, employers, and alumni in informal group discussions on various topics that may be student suggested. Usually taking place in casual environments, Meetups are a great way to make connections, share experiences, and learn from one another. Check out upcoming Meetups in Handshake.
Labs are an interactive type of meetup, where we give you the opportunity to work on a specific document, such as a resume or cover letter, or a project with assistance and immediate feedback from a Career Community team member. Check out upcoming Labs in Handshake.
Career Coaching is available for students to meet with their assigned Career Educator from the Communities team. Students may request an appointment through Handshake to cover interests and goals, assessments, career opportunities, making connections, preparing for interviews, and more.
Industry Specialists & Associates
The Industry Specialists team is dedicated to increasing student-employer connections on campus. Make an appointment with an industry specialist to learn more about employers in your industry. Available appointments are listed in Handshake.
Assessments are excellent resources for clarifying your interests, developing a professional vocabulary for yourself, and establishing a starting point for your career exploration. If you are interested in one or more of the assessments below, please make an appointment with your Career Communities Coach to determine which assessments would be a good fit for you. A regular 15, 30, or 45 minute appointment would work for this.
If you are a part of a group (class, student organization, campus partner, etc.) and are interested in providing assessments to your group, as well as group coaching, please complete this interest form. Please note that it is the responsibility of the group to cover all costs associated with the assessments; BEAM will provide access as well as group coaching.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The MBTI indicates your personality preferences. It also provides feedback on work settings and various careers where your personality type might be either a complement or a challenge.
Strong Interest Inventory (SII)
The SII measures your level of interest in occupational areas, activities, school subjects, and work environments.
The CliftonStrengths assessment generates a list of your top five talent themes, along with action items for development and suggestions about how you can use your talents to achieve academic, career, and personal satisfaction.
Meaningful Work Kit
The Meaningful Work Kit empowers you to identify and prioritize what is essential to you at your core, work cultures that are a fit for you, and skills you enjoy using. The Kit is a practical tool that gives you concrete and valuable insights. You can make a 45-minute appointment with your career coach to do this card sort activity.
