However, as a part of the LEAD program, all students are asked to complete two online LEAD requirements over the summer:
Completing the Career Profile and the Financial Sophistication Assessment will fulfill your first year LEAD requirements: LEAD 100 and LEAD 106 respectively. Please note that you will still have other LEAD requirements to complete throughout the year. You can speak with your Peer Advisor for guidance once you arrive on campus.
Neither of the assessments will take you very long, nor are they graded; these are tools that will help you understand yourself better and will give us a strong understanding of how to better serve the Champlain College student population.
Preparing students for their career is at the heart of Champlain's education. Engagement in career education through the Life Experience & Action Dimension (LEAD) program and the Career Collaborative office will be a cornerstone of your Champlain experience. Over the course of the four years, you will receive individual career guidance, participate in career management seminars, network with employers and build your professional identity.
The first step in this journey is completing your Career Profile on JobSpot, Champlain's online career management platform and job board. This will be your go-to resource for finding employment and internship opportunities while you are a student and beyond. Completing your JobSpot account profile will enable your Career Collaborative office coach to customize your career development plan.
In early August, all incoming students will receive an email with instructions and the link to complete their Career Profile on JobSpot. This email is sent to students' Champlain College mymail account. Please remember this assessment is due by September 2, 2016.

Part of becoming a well-rounded citizen is learning how to make financially responsible choices. As a Champlain student, you are asked to complete two financial assessments to survey your financial knowledge and habits—one before you arrive on campus as a first-year student and one when you are a senior. All information is kept strictly confidential and will only be used as aggregate data.
When you arrive at Champlain, our innovative financial sophistication program will be an integral part of your LEAD program and education. You will have access to workshops and activities that will help you learn all that you need to know to be financially savvy. Whether you are starting from the basics or already have experience managing your personal finances, we will help you find the workshops that best fit your needs.
During the summer, all incoming students will receive an email with instructions to complete their financial assessment through Canvas, the college's official online learning portal. This email is sent to students' Champlain College mymail account. Please remember this assessment is due by September 2, 2016.
