Career Counseling is available on an individual basis to currently enrolled students to discuss issues such as deciding on a major, choosing a career, and job search-related issues. The office utilizes inventories to assist students in identifying their interests, skills, career-related personality preferences, and values in order to make sound career decisions. These inventories are also available to alumni as well as to the community at a nominal fee.
