Career Planning & Job Placement

Career Planning

The Career Planning and Job Placement service of the Advising, Career, and Transfer Center (ACTC) 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 starts with Career Counseling.

 

Career Counseling

Career Counseling is provided through personalized, one-on-one sessions with a career counselor. 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.

  • SIGI 3 (Login to BlackBoard, select Student information, Career Planning Services, Career Assessment Tools)
  • The Strong Interest Inventory
  • The Holland Self-Directed Search
  • Personality Preference Exercise

 

Career Programming and Resources

You can engage in job shadowing or informational interviewing to either confirm a career direction or identify a new one. Various career and employment related materials are available in the Center’s Resource Room. Informational booklets are available for quick reference in the following areas:
