Career Services

  • Career Exploration and Counseling

    Our passion is: finding your passion. Our career exploration and assessments can pinpoint ideal career paths for you to explore! The assessments act as a tool to recommend which major is the best fit for you. If you are still unsure of your career path or want more information, all you need to do is make an appointment with our career advisors for one-on-one guidance in exploring and choosing a major and/or career.

    Assessments

    We offer a variety of assessments to identify your interests, values, experiences and abilities. These are similar to multiple-choice exams, but are not timed and do not have right or wrong answers. Reviewing and understanding the outcomes will help lead to exploring and choosing different majors and careers.
