COLLEGE

 

Once in college, the student must begin to focus on a career path. Too often, this decision is left until the junior or senior year, when it creates additional stress. Therefore, it is imperative that students choose a college major and a career goal, as timely as possible, so as to maximize their education investment in seeking the relevant classes, professors, internships, and exposure to professionals in a chosen field.

Beyond a specific skill set, major companies seek employees who match their culture, share the values of their organization, and commit to being a long-term, productive employee. College students, who can identify with companies that complement their own values and who also have a detailed understanding of the organization’s core services, have a distinct advantage in developing their college path.

  • Internship assistance for career launch
  • Networking, interviewing, and new employee onboarding

SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships are an important element of a comprehensive college financial plan. As a result of the vast number of scholarships available, applications requirements, and dedicating the time to apply, many students find the task overwhelming and therefore forego it. Additionally, unknown to many students, is the fact that scholarship possibilities even exist for students after they enter college through avenues such as alumni associations and professional societies.  Campus to Career Crossroads will help the students identify the scholarship(s) that are applicable to them throughout the entire college process. 

Campus to Career Crossroads avidly recognizes the significance of scholarships and their monetary assistance in offsetting the ever-rising costs of college tuition. Therefore, it is pleased to be able to offer a scholarship program of its own. A company scholarship will be awarded to one graduating high school student enrolled in a full-time accredited college.
