Career Counseling


Having trouble deciding on a major?
Interested in going into a different career?
Need help looking for a job?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, a career counselor may be able to help you. Making a career decision can help set a direction toward career satisfaction and success. Making this decision, however, can be a challenge for most people. Without fully knowing what kind of career fits with your goals, interests, skills, personality and work values, you may find yourself making a poor career choice.

A counselor can assist you in the following areas:

  • Help you learn more about your interests, skills, personality, and work values.
  • Assess problems and conflicts that may be impeding your decision-making.
  • Determine which career assessments would be appropriate for you.
  • Help you develop a great resume and cover letter.
  • Learn more about cooperative education opportunities.
  • Teach you effective interviewing techniques and job search strategies.
  • Administer a videotaped mock interview.
  • And much more...
