Career Counseling

If you know you want to make a change, but are unsure how and what you want to do, career counseling with a professionally-trained counselor is the answer.

  • Self-Assessment – Understanding your interests, skills, values, and personality is where all career decision-making begins.  You must know yourself before you move forward.
  • Individual Career Counseling – You can meet with a Career Counselor for three individual sessions.  You will engage in self-assessment, evaluation, clarification of your goals, and development of a plan by which to achieve them.
  • MyPlan is a free, online career development program available to alumni, where you will take several self-assessment inventories to identify possible career options.
