I sought to form a partnership with colleges’ career development centers through Career Day. The idea is that a college student would go to their career development center to consult with a career counselor about changing their major, and exploring a different career path. This is how it would go: The student can access the service for free through their school’s portal. After entering their current major and desired career, the website will provide the student with the choice of several times for the one-day experience, the student will then receive a Career Day experience box, which will include an “ice-break card,” customized pins, a notebook, and a pen. She will also receive an invitation card with details of the experience that is to take place.
During my user group research, my interviewees Leo and Chai expressed interest in this idea. I connected Leo with Krithi to experience a day of being a singer, and Chai with Anagh to experience a day of being an illustrator.
