Meet with a Counselor

Using several assessment tools, our counselors can help you learn more about your personality, interests and skills and how they match the profiles of various career fields. Counselors will work with you one-on-one, or you can enroll in the college’s PDS 122 Career Exploration course.

Use Career Information Resources

Many resources are available to help you learn about different careers—the nature of the work, the employment outlook, the salaries paid, the education required and more.

Learn about Career Preparation at CLC

If you choose a major requiring a bachelor’s degree or further education, you will choose the transfer degree path at CLC.

If, however, you are seeking a career you can enter right after graduating from CLC, you will choose one of CLC’s career preparation programs fields.

Attend a Career Information Session

Attend a CLC career information session. Throughout the year CLC offers information sessions on many of its career preparation programs.

Talk to a Faculty Member

If a career information session isn’t currently scheduled, learn more about the CLC program you are interested in by talking to a faculty member in the program. Contact information for each program is listed on the academic program page.
