Choosing a direction

The Career Exploration Centers offer several types of free career assessments which can be very useful in trying to identify possible major or career directions. Please contact the Career Exploration Center at the campus nearest you to make an appointment for one or all of the career assessments. (Not all assessments are available at all campuses.)

Please Note: Career Assessments will not tell you which occupation or major to select. They will help you understand how majors and occupations fit into the world-of-work, and narrow or expand your major or career options.

Completing assessments is an active process in which the user needs to be willing to take additional steps after completing the assessments in order to benefit the most from the programs.

More formal assessments are available within our Career and Life Planning classes or for students engaged in career counseling with a PCC Counselor.
