“Be open to inspiration”
Melanie Buford, Program Coordinator/Adjunct Instructor, Career Development Center, University of Cincinnati
A senior psychology major came into my office the other day. She dropped her bag, plopped down into a chair and said “I’m lost!”
With relatively little prompting, the story came out. She already knew her long term goal: to be a child and family therapist. A faculty mentor had recommended a graduate program for her, and, doing very little of her own research, she applied to the program and turned her attention back to school. She was accepted, fortunately, but upon learning more about it, she realized that it was a business focused program, not a therapeutic one.
“That’s disappointing,” I said, “But it sounds like you have a good sense of what you’d like to do in the short term – graduate school – and the long term – child and family therapy.”
