A Career Coach offers support with career exploration, preparation, and planning during a 2-month commitment for 2 hours a week. Through this partnership, Scholars gain the skills and confidence to achieve their career goals.
Coaches provide one-on-one career support to college students in:

- Identifying and preparing to apply to graduate school
- Interview preparation
- Informational interviews and career exploration
- Networking techniques

We are seeking individuals with excellent writing skills, who have experience job searching (preparing one's own resume/cover letter, interviewing, etc), and who are enthusiastic about sharing their personal experience. Bachelor's Degree required.
Time Commitment: 2 hours a week for 2 months. This opportunity can be completed remotely.
Benefits: Career Coaches lay the foundation for new career prospects for low-income, first-generation college students of color. Your support and expertise can help more SCS Noonan Scholars transition into successful careers.
SCS Noonan Scholars Mission: At SCS Noonan Scholars, our mission is to help high-achieving underrepresented students graduate from top colleges equipped to achieve their full potential in their chosen career. SCS Noonan Scholars is committed to bridging the college achievement gap for first-generation college students through a unique seven-step replicable model proven to establish a foundation for lifelong success. Many high-achieving high school students from low-income families lack the necessary resources to define and support their educational and professional goals. Our core belief is that a college education is the only reliable and predictable way for underserved youth to achieve their full potential.
