Often, the best, most inspiring advice comes from listening to the personal experiences of others. Communication with professionals can provide realistic information about career options, job responsibilities, and employment conditions. In addition, they may be able to refer you to other contacts in the industry.
The COACH program is comprised of alumni of St. John's University and other colleges representing diverse career fields nationwide, who have offered to share their career experiences with students and other alumni.
Getting a COACH is an excellent way to meet people in your field and learn about career opportunities. Please understand that COACHes are to be contacted for information about their careers, their organization, and their industry- not for job opportunities.
