Career Development and Experiential Learning at Lake Erie College
The Career Development and Experiential Learning department is here to explore your goals and help you discover where your chosen degree can take you.
Where Do You See Yourself in Ten Years?
When you were young, the answer may have been easy, but facing down economic statistics and the realities of an ever-changing job market mean your childhood dreams might not come to fruition. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) says that people of today’s workforce will have more than 12 jobs in their lifetime. We know how daunting a statistic like this sounds and Lake Erie College includes a department dedicated to helping our students buck the trend.
