  • "Susan Roudebush creates career development software that helps students plan their futures. She works remotely from her Ashland home as a University of Oregon faculty member, serving career guidance leaders across the United States and internationally.
    Organizers of the Ashland High School Parent Academy invited Roudebush to speak tonight at a free presentation on career and college planning.
    Her talk is intended to be useful for students of any age and their parents.
    One of the focuses will be the Internet-based Oregon Career Information System, known as CIS, which is administered by the College of Education at the University of Oregon.
    This program offers students information about occupations and industries, postsecondary programs and schools, scholarships and financial aid.
    Students create a CIS portfolio in their advisory classes to help them target their goals, store career assessments and share pertinent information with colleges and employers.
    Roudebush has lived in Ashland for 14 years, after moving here from Portland. She conducts research for the University of Oregon and leads national trainings for CIS state operators.
    She also is a Global Career Development Facilitator instructor and trainer, which are international credentials in career development.
    She earned bachelor's degrees in speech and hearing sciences and in psychology, and a master's degree in counseling and student personnel services, with a concentration on college career counseling, from Purdue University. She undertook three years of doctoral studies in school psychology at the University of Oregon.
    In 2003, she consulted with the University of Ankara in Turkey to establish a new graduate degree program that united its business management-personnel program with the career counseling program. These new graduates, she says, were needed for the evolving democratic society.
