The career planning process typically begins with scheduling an appointment with a counselor to discuss future goals and options. Counselors:
- Provide assistance to students in evaluating their interests, talents, and personality to develop academic and career goals.
- Provide students information on current and future employment trends.
- Help students develop effective models for making career decisions and setting goals.
It may be helpful to consider taking an interest inventory or assessment of personality preferences when making a decision about choosing a career. The results of these career assessments are used as the basis for career exploration and counseling. See also: additional career planning resources.
