"Sure, I've already made some important choices to get this far. But the choices ahead of me feel so much bigger ... and way less clear."
Figuring out what you want from college -- and what you want after college -- can be daunting. After all, you're making some pretty big and pretty important decisions about your life. The key is to break them down. And if you're feeling lost or stuck, to get some traction.
At SilverFern Advisory, we have the experience, insights, tips, and tricks to meet you where you are and help you find the direction you're looking for.
Whether you're feeling lost and confused, fully on track, or somewhere in between, we can help you take that next big step toward a future that excites you.
Unsure about your unique talents? Let's identify and leverage the qualities that set you apart.
Looking for inspiration to be your very best? We'll help you figure it out, then show you how to connect with the kinds of ideas, activities, and organizations that you care about.

College Freshmen & Sophomores
In our EXPLORE sessions, we work with students entering college and in the first two years to help you get the most out of your college experience.
College offers incredible opportunities for you to get involved, get exposure, and get experience. Be sure to take advantage of it! But how?
We'll work together to develop a College Game Plan that you feel good about. Your plan will be based on your own unique talents and interests, with plenty of room to explore and find balance across academic, campus, community, and co-curricular activities. This program may conclude with an optional student-parent session.
College Juniors & Seniors
In our PREPARE sessions, we equip you as a more experienced student to launch successfully after college. Remember, the earlier you start the more in-control you'll feel. The key lies in developing your ability to identify and articulate your own talents, values, and passions ... and to connect them to real-world needs.
We will be with you at each step in considering the post-college opportunities that are truly a good fit for you. And we'll coach you on tangible and effective approaches for demonstrating how you can add unique value to the kinds of organizations you want to be part of. We'll help you develop an action plan that has specific milestone dates and outcomes to achieve your goals.
For students thinking about graduate school right away, this is a crucial time to do the work to be sure the fit is right for you and the rewards will be worth the time and money invested.
In our PURSUE sessions, we work with you after graduation to refine your search for meaningful employment. Lots of college students graduate without jobs, so you're not alone. Even if you're currently employed, you may be considering a change to something that's a better fit for your skills, interests, or goals.
We are not a placement agency. But we are firmly committed to serving young adults like you who are looking for a great match between what they have to offer and what the world needs.
