Hello – My name is Ken Schueller, Career Counselor and Director of Career Development Services at the University of Central Missouri.  I am glad that you found me because if you are trying to make a “major” or “minor” decision regarding your career, then I’ve been looking for you. Don’t put off getting the individualized assistance you need any longer. I specialize in helping the undecided and I’d love to help you!

Originally from the great state of Wisconsin, my professional life has provided me with experience in aviation technology, safety, quality assurance, industrial management, production management and career development in a wide variety of locations and settings.

Academically, I have undergraduate degrees in aviation technology and management with an emphasis in human resources; advanced degrees in management and human resource development (specializing in career development). I am an internationally certified career coach and a nationally recognized master career development professional, with additional credentials in administering and interpreting career assessments.

Remember this – Deciding on a major may be a major decision, but it’s not a decision you have to face on your own – call now!
