Parents

What’s Your Role as a Parent in your student’s career decisions?

The most important thing you can do as a parent is to support your student’s career exploration and career choices, and to encourage your student to take advantage of all TWU has to offer. By encouraging, listening, and providing moral support, you can help your student navigate the career development process, which can be stressful, time consuming, and occasionally difficult. Discussing career issues with your student and encouraging him/her to actively use the Career Development Office throughout their TWU experience, increases the likelihood that your student will identify career options and gain valuable career-related experiences. The result will be a smooth transition from TWU to graduate school or to the world of work.
