Career Counseling Services

Career Planning

The Career Planning and Job Placement service is designed to assist you throughout the various points in your college career.  As you plan for your programs of study for the first time, change your college majors, and set your future career goals, the beginning of this planning process all starts with Career Counseling.

Career Counseling

Career Counseling is provided through personalized, one-on-one sessions with a career counselor or through group workshops. Counseling provides the opportunity to review your personal, educational, and career-related thoughts in a confidential and supportive environment. The career counselor will help you assess your career interests and identify suitable options that match your current and future career goals.  Various career and personality inventories and resources are available to supplement the career counseling process. Career counseling is supported through the practices of the American Counseling Association (ACA). 

Career and Personality Inventories

Career and personality inventories may be offered in conjunction with career counseling to optimize choices that will suit your interests and personality.
