Career counseling assist students and alumni in exploring their interests, personality preferences, skills and values to develop realistic career options that best fits their talents.
A career plan combines self-assessment, exploration and decision-making to launch the steps needed for career success. It can be a life-long plan, through college and beyond. A career plan will assist you in completing an educational plan effectively.
Career counseling helps guide students and alumni through self-assessment, exploration, research and decision-making to find their career options and appropriate major.
Career assessment is a battery of career tests that include interest surveys, personality inventories, skills assessments and values clarification. These are provided free of charge at the Career Center or in CDCD classes and workshops.
The Career Center is generally open from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and closed on Friday. Call 239-3117 to make an appointment or to verify hours.
