As the parent of a King University student, we want you to know that the Career Success
Center is fully committed to helping your student take control of their personal and
professional development from their initial days on campus. Our goal is to equip each
student with the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to achieve their career objectives. We
have a checklist for students to follow during each year they spend at King. Encourage
your student to utilize the services and resources offered by the Center early and
often in their journey at the University. Some of the services and resources include;Career ExplorationDuring their King 1000 – First Year Experience course, each student is required to
take the Focus 2 online assessment inventory to help determine their interests, abilities,
and personality preferences.One-on-One Career Counseling SessionsAfter they have taken Focus 2 or the Career Matrix, your student should schedule a
meeting with a Career Success Center staff member to review the results of their assessment
to determine which majors and career fields they might explore.
Declaring a MajorIt is important that each student declare a major as early in their career at King
as possible. This allows him or her to be paired with an academic advisor who will
assist them with the selection of courses to ensure they graduate on time. The Career
Success Center staff can help guide them through the process of declaring a major.
InternshipsThe King University Internship Program is designed to give students a paid or non-paid
learning experience – mostly in an off-campus setting – related to their major and
potential career. The program is generally limited to juniors and seniors, and many
majors require an Internship as part of the course work. Students should begin to
inquire about an internship by the end of their sophomore year.
Gaining ExperienceGaining experience can happen in a variety of ways: an internship, on-campus organizations,
study abroad, travel opportunities, service learning, work study positions, and many
more. Students can take advantage of these opportunities to develop professional skills
and build their resume.

writing, interviewing, job search techniques, networking, and marketing themselves
to employers. The Career Success Center provides individualized training in all of
