Career Center’s Genine Apidone facilitates roundtable on career counseling at national conference

Genine Apidone, career development manager in the Case Western Reserve University Career Center, facilitated a roundtable discussion on Career Counseling Program best practices at the National Career Development Association annual conference in San Antonio on July 1. Her discussion centered around the CWRU Career Center Counseling Program as a model program and highlighted distinguishable features including the 4-Phase Career Development model and the documentation guidelines used by the CWRU Career Center staff to determine a student’s level of career decision making “readiness.” These features are just some examples of the services offered at the Career Center that have resulted in an overall increase of 752 (35.3%) students who either scheduled an appointment or came to the Career Center during drop-in consulting hours this past academic year.
