Re: careers advisor - April 21st 2012, 01:39 AM

It varies from advisor to advisor, and university to university. For example, at my university, our career advisors could help with general questions (how to prepare for an interview, how to make a resume look better, information about the various academic departments on campus), but they couldn't help us with making specific decisions. My career advisor didn't know which clinical psychology programs were good - so I had to find all that out on my own. My career advisor didn't know about the different career options and the salary ranges - so again, I had to find all that out on my own. Your career advisor could know a lot about your degree and the various career options, or they may not know much at all.

In addition to speaking with a career advisor, I would talk to professors in your department in order to get a sense of what your options are, as well as talking to people in the industries you're interested in. For example, talk to travel agents/guides, interpreters, etc. and ask them how they got to their dream job, any tips they have for interviewing, if they know of any companies that are hiring, and so on.
