Career Center: Planning for Winter Break

Planning Your Break Wisely
While winter break is a chance for students to relax, rejuvenate, and celebrate with friends and loved ones, it's also an ideal time for personal reflection, career exploration, and planning summer learning experiences. Encourage your students to register in Handshake for our “Planning Your Break Wisely” workshop on Dec. 12. We’ll help them identify simple goals for making the most of the break and returning with a renewed focus on personal and professional growth!
Students can access Handshake through the Career Center site, or their CC single sign on page.
