Career Assessments

According to Wikipedia, Career Assessments are tools that are designed to help individuals understand how a variety of personal attributes (i.e., interest, values, preferences, motivations, aptitudes, and skills) impact their potential success and satisfaction with different career options and work environments.

Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program offers subsidized part-time employment opportunities for students who have received FWS as part of their financial aid package. Most positions are on campus, with a few positions at community service sites.

Choosing a Major

Choosing a major in college can be a daunting task. Individuals typically begin their career search at a different point in their life. Every student has a different work history, personal challenges and/or obligations, as well as desired level of educational attainment. Given the notion that no two people are the same, career counselors usually look at various factors that influence a person's decision. Through personal exploration, we will discover your values, skills; motivation; expectations; interest; passion; and work history just to name a few.

Career Counseling

For many people, choosing a career can be a daunting task. The Career Counselor is available to better assist you in the selection and decision making process. Various career assessments may be administered on a case-by-case basis in order to help clarify a person's values, interest, skills, and abilities.
