Color, College, & Career

Last night I was winding down and came across a thing about a Career Profiler based on color. My first thought was, yeah right. Then I thought, what the heck, just for kicks. Freaky! It pegged me as an organizer and researcher/teacher. Here's the link: (and it's FREE)

The site gives you a pretty detailed career profile based on your color preferences. I'm presuming most people don't change their color preferences in life and so this should be a pretty good aid (while using others) in narrowing down a life career. Allegedly, there's been lots of research done with this color profiler . . . Anyhow, most people when they come to college don't know what in the world they want to do in life, and that's okay! College should be a time to explore ideas, and one's self, more deeply, while getting a well-rounded education. At Rockhurst University we have a good Career Center that hosts lots of career opportunity sessions, and there are many "instruments" you can take to help discover more about yourself and what types of careers would best be suited for your make-up. Rockhurst has an outstanding reputation and many employers snap up our grads in numerous fields. Rockhurst also hosts Career Fairs where you get to meet employers etc. We also have sessions on proper dinner etiquette, interviewing strategies, etc etc.

So Rockhurst University helps prepare students to live and serve in the real world. Check out this link and see all the Career Oriented events we have for the Fall.

Rockhurst Day 'Round the Corner

It’s Fall and time is already flying by! Before you know it, Rockhurst Day will be here. Why don’t you mark your calendar and plan a visit on September 26th. It would be a great day to see the campus and share in the activities. It’s Home Coming and there are soccer matches and festivities for all ages and food and . . . well it’s just a blast. Just wanted to give you a heads up so you can plan that weekend.
And speaking of festivities, check out the recent goings on at Rockhurst.
