First Year Career Awareness Program
The First Year Career Awareness Program (FY CAP)
In the summer before they enroll at Washington College, first-year students complete Focus 2, a strengths and skills self-assessment. At New Student Orientation, they meet in groups with the center for Career Development staff to learn about the CAP’s objectives and expectations. They can also meet with Career Development staff to discuss their individual Focus 2 results. Later in the year, there is a Career Development presentation for first-year students to further explore career awareness. An important outcome of the CAP is for students to produce a draft resume while developing a professional online profile.
