Career Counseling is a process of examining your skills, interests, personality, and values in relationship to the world of work. Our role is to guide you as you learn career and life planning skills that will, hopefully, help you establish or change your career goal.
There are several ways to approach this process. You may work with a counselor individually by making an appointment (360.475.7530). You may sign up for a career planning workshop and then meet with a counselor afterwards or you may register for the one credit General Studies 140 class that is usually offered each quarter.
