Herd on Campus:Career Services Offers Find Your Purpose Lunch & Learn Sept. 13

“We have received seeds of destiny, seeds of purpose. When we are born, each one of us possesses seeds – interests, abilities, skills and talents.”
–       “Seeds of Destiny” by Dr. Mary Askew

Dr. Mary Askew, GCU’s career services adviser, found her purpose in helping others find their own. As a nutritionist, a homemaker and now a career adviser, she has worked to provide people with all the food they need to fulfill their purpose.

“I believe everyone has a purpose and a destiny and it is important to discover it,” she says. “This is an important time for young people to find what they want out of life. It’s not what you do, it’s who you are.”

Dr. Mary Askew and Jacqueline Smith

In 2004, Askew helped pilot the Career Services Center at GCU. She earned degrees in nutrition at Hampton (Va.) University and Howard University (Washington, D.C.). She earned her doctorate in career development at Logos Bible College (Jacksonville, Fla.).She believes she found her destiny and purpose at GCU.

Askew will be the presenter at the first Career Services Lunch & Learn on Monday, Sept. 13. The event will follow Chapel and will be held in McKinley Hall in the Student Union. The topic: Find Your Purpose.

Career Services will unveil the FOCUS-2 program, an interactive online tool to help students evaluate their interests, values, preferences and skills, then measure that against college major interests and career goals.

Career Services Director Jacqueline Smith says the in-depth program will be an invaluable tool for all students at GCU, both on campus and online. According to Smith, the program is much deeper and broader than the Holland Codes and other similar career-guidance tools.

“FOCUS measures a person’s readiness,” Smith says. “Students can make sure they are on the right path. The more they know about themselves, the more they can feel confident in their decisions.”

Career Services Lunch & Learns are currently capped at 70 students. They are first come, first served.

Upcoming events include:

  • Sept. 20 – Creating a personal mission statement with Robin Hanson
  • Oct. 4 – Social media tips with Robyn Itule
  • Nov. 8 – From Rags to Enrichment with Brenda Combs
