Career Counseling

Our Counselor is here to provide academic and career counseling, career workshops, and administer career assessments and inventories. The Counselor can assist you with resumes, cover letters, and with developing interview skills.

Students are encouraged to meet with a counselor each semester. Counselors are available for assistance in:

• Choosing majors
• Career assessments
• Making career choices
• Time management
• Developing social and interpersonal skills

Emphasis is placed upon assisting students in their growth and accepting responsibility for their decisions and actions. Recognizing that each student is unique, counselors believe their primary responsibility is to respect students’ individuality, encourage personal development, and foster a climate in which each student attains academic success.

Career Exploration

If you have questions about which major is best for you, what you can do with a particular major or how your major will translate to the career you want, you can work with a Counselor who can assist you using targeted career assessments and inventories.

• Take an inventory of your skills, abilities, interests, knowledge, needs, and personality characteristics.
• You can complete a personal inventory using a variety of self-assessment tools and instruments.

To make a counseling appointment with Student Services, please call (760) 366-3791 ext. 4232.
