Hello, 2020 Graduates

Congratulations, Graduates!

Although we can’t commemorate or celebrate this milestone in the usual ways, this is an amazing achievement for you and your families, and you should be proud.  We wish you the best as they move forward into the next phase of their life.

Of course, even under normal circumstances, graduating from high school or college brings with it both excitement and challenges.  We are ready to help with either (or both).

High School to College

For those graduating high school and preparing for college in the Fall, there is likely to be anxiety and frustration for both the graduate and their parents around what college life will look like.  At the moment, none of us can say whether college will be on campus or virtual.  Each option has its own set of challenges and rewards, but either way our coaches are trained to help prepare for, and settle in, to the reality of the circumstances.  Our Executive Functions Coaches can help provide support to foster independent learning:

  • Time management skills
  • Maintaining focus for extended periods
  • Initiating tasks
  • Breaking down larger assignments
  • Arranging ideas in writing
  • Planning ahead

College to Work

For those graduating college and now looking to enter the workforce, our Career Coaches can help supply the tools you need to search for the right opportunity. Here are some of the services available to you:

  • Creating a resume that will get you noticed!  We can help you pull together the skills and qualifications that define who you are and present it in a format that aligns with the position you seek and the difference you want to make.
  • Cover letters are as important as the resume – sometimes even more so because they are the first impression made by a candidate.  We can help you tailor the cover letter to the position being sought to ensure the recruiter wants to know more about you!
  • Interview skills are essential!  Knowing how to conduct oneself in a manner that makes a good first ‘in-person’ impression is key to the interview going well.  Being able to navigate through the interview, answering key questions in a way that is informative and impressive will leave the interviewer wanting more.  We’ll review key questions usually asked and help you create your ‘story’.
  • Thank you notes – an important ending to any interview.  We can help you include the appropriate language to let the interviewer know you were ‘present’ in the interview and are very interested in the opportunity.

Student Coaching

Beyond executive functions coaching, Sasco River Center also offers Student Coaching to continuing high school and college students.  A Student Coach can support high school and college students:

  • Identify who they are, who they want to be, and the skills they need for their journey.
  • Design an inspirational and collaborative exploration.
  • Transfer meaningful learning for their personal success
  • Recognize that personality and EQ (emotional quotient) is as important as academic or athletic capability
  • Enable students to take ownership and accountability of their choices and their opportunities.
