An Important Journey

Discover, Decide, Develop, and Deliver. These four stages come together to create the Career Development Cycle, through which students are guided. Each stage of the cycle breaks down into various activities and resources that Southeastern uses to serve students at Southeastern. Wherever you currently are in your college career, our office suggests that students begin at the “Discover” stage and work forward from there in order to grasp the entire experience that Southeastern has developed. Along the way, the Career Development office offers students support in order to optimize each stage.

Furthermore, our office has put forth a section of the four vital virtues for the career development process. Alongside the core competencies that govern the whole education, Southeastern seeks to cultivate these four virtues within our students. Ultimately, the goal for career development is to shape our students into people with the character needed to go forth and flourish in a variety of vocations within an ever-changing world of work.

Development Process

The discovery period is where a student actively thinks about themselves in their life situations and, particularly, in the world of work. This period goes beyond simply day-dreaming. True self-discovery requires intentional dedication to think about one’s own aptitudes, desires, and values and how they actually translate to ways the student may flourish in life after college. Alongside this self-discovery, the students will be assisted to research and discover what real-world options are available for life beyond Southeastern.
