This fall 2004, members of the Salisbury Center for Career Services implemented the Pathways program, to help students create, follow and mark progress throughout their college careers and prepare for their professional endeavors. The program is used to encourage and motivate students to explore, execute and experience all of their academic, personal and career-related interests. Colleen Johnson, career counselor, had an article featuring the program, “Making Career Services a Point of Difference,” published in Career Convergence, the National Career Development Association Web magazine.
Pathways is an active four-year program which features a support network dedicated to sustaining students’ growth and success. This program motivates and keeps students on track in gaining knowledge and experience through Career Services workshops, experiential learning, career counseling, job shadowing and on-the-job experiences.
Johnson holds a master’s degree in human resource development from Rochester Institute of Technology, and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from St. Bonaventure University.
