Career Coaches: another perk for our Seeples

SIPA’s Office of Career Services (OCS) offers numerous ways to assist current students with their job search and professional networking. One of these ways is the SIPA Career Coaching (SIPACC) program, which was created by OCS as a supplement to its services. While OCS advisors will continue to provide counsel with regard to career advising services and general industry knowledge, SIPACC coaches are experts in their field who can offer industry-specific knowledge for current students who are contemplating various career choices or seeking targeted and specific information about particular fields of interest.
