The staff offers assistance to individuals and groups, in the development of career goals, by examining aptitudes, values and exploring career interests. Choosing a career path is a process that unfolds throughout the college years and beyond. It involves discovering individual potential, learning about career fields, and gaining career-related experience. Career Services has developed an online handout titled “Making Career Choices” which outlines procedures for making career and educational decisions.
Being undecided about your program of study or career direction is not uncommon. Keep in mind that you are not alone. In fact, many students like yourself are not certain of their program of study and change majors at least once. Often students do not know what they can or want to do with a given major.
For those students who are still in the process of deciding upon their program of study or career direction, Career Services at CFCC offers a variety of suggestions and services. It may be possible for students who are already in a program of study to receive college credit for your work experience. Please refer to the the Cooperative Education web page for additional information.
