Making sound career decisions is a process based upon accurate, up-to-date, and sufficient information. The second part of this process is using a decision-making strategy that is thorough, well thought out, considers alternatives, and has anticipated some obstacles that may get in the way. Research shows, students who have a career or program goal are more successful in college.

The LSC Counselor is here to help students with this important decision. Students can work with a counselor to take career assessments and to set up career exploration activities.

Career counseling may involve the following activities:

  • Career assessment and exploration to discover your interests, skills, and values
  • Identifying types of education and training needed for various careers
  • Researching career resources to learn about the job market (salaries, employment outlook, working conditions)

  • Changing majors or careers
