Career Pathways and Education

Sara Jay

In my role as the Associate Director for Career Pathways and Education at the University of Florida’s Career Connections Center, I provide leadership and spearhead strategic initiatives to shape and elevate the C3’s Career Pathways model. Proactively removing barriers to industry education, this model empowers students to explore diverse career and skill development opportunities, regardless of their majors.

I am a Certified Master of Career Services (CMCS) and a Certified Facilitating Career Development Instructor (FCD-I) accredited by the National Career Development Association. I have the privilege of delivering extensive training to new and experienced career development professionals through an intensive 120-hour Facilitating Career Development curriculum. This experience-based curriculum teaches essential skills needed for the future of work. Engaging in dynamic conversations with fellow career development professionals to share insights and nurture their evolution into exemplary practitioners is a passion of mine.
