Career Counseling Steps:
Assessment & Testing
First, looking at who you are and what you value is the most important first step to the career process. You will complete several career assessments related to your past experiences, interests, skills, values and motivations. Career assessments are available in order to help you understand your personality, values, interests and motivations.
Career Research & Exploration
During this phase of career counseling you will begin to conduct research on your top career possibilities that you uncovered during Step 1. THE MOST IMPORTANT step you can take before moving forward toward a career is to research it, talk to people in the career and see the career in action. This step is the one most frequently neglected for most of us. Your coach will guide you through this essential research process so that you can gather key information before moving forward in choosing a college major and/or career.

You will narrow your choices down and develop a personalized career development plan, addressing your 6 month, 1 year, 2 year, 5 year career/life plan.
