Get counseled

The career counseling office provides personalized, one-on-one sessions and group workshops. Our sessions allow you to review your personal, educational, and career-related thoughts in a confidential and supportive environment. A career counselor will help you consider your career interests and identify options that match your current and future career goals. Different career and personality inventories and other resources are available to help this process.
