Career Counseling offers programs in an environment considerate of students' abilities, personalities, needs, values, and cultural backgrounds. Through collaboration with both the SCC campus community and industry partners, our goal is to connect students to the world of work while expanding students' self-awareness and engagement in the career development process.
The Career Counseling staff and faculty educate and empower students through the career development process. This is done through one-to-one support, workshops, classroom presentations, events, resources. Career Counseling collaborates with the campus community, including discipline faculty and campus programs and builds connections with local industry partners. Through these services and collaborative efforts, Career Counseling fosters the opportunity for the students to engage in self-reflection and find majors/careers that match their unique identities.
