Within their first year, Mules are given the tools to begin navigating career pathways & the understanding of how the Career Center can support their journey.
The Muhlenberg Action Plan (MAP) is a unique program that allows students to harness the power of their liberal arts degree to ensure success throughout their time at Muhlenberg and beyond.
The MAP honors the uniqueness of each student but is driven by the singular theme that small, repetitive actions become positive habit and positive habits become keys to decreasing stress, increasing self-efficacy and creating a successful career in an ever-changing employment landscape.
As students progress through their time at Muhlenberg our expert staff work to build students' knowledge and abilities through deep reflection and actionable steps centered around The Muhlenberg Actions Plans four core areas:
- explore careers
- gain experience
- gain expertise
- achieve excellence.
Our office uses Handshake, which is a cutting-edge technology platform used by the top institutions across the country that helps students more easily connect with employers and source jobs and internships. Students' MAP achievement during their time at Muhlenberg is tracked via their Handshake profile and we send customized invitations to workshops, resources, programs, internships/jobs, and much more! Students can access their personalized resources in the Handshake Resource Library.
Our work with students is active, focused, positive and outcome-oriented. Find out how we can help you get career-ready.
