What are some common problems that Career Counseling can help me with?
When should I come to Career Counseling?
Now is a great time to come in! The earlier you come into Career Counseling, the more likely you are to feel like you have a personal motivation for being in college and the less likely you are to spend time, money, and energy taking classes that are not a good fit for you and your future career. That being said, it is never too late to find a career that is a good fit for you, so do not be discouraged from attending Career Counseling if you are close to graduation.
How long is the process?
It usually takes about 4 sessions; however, you can determine how many sessions of these you want to attend and how they are spaced out over your college career. It also depends on other factors, including how much time and energy you can devote to the process between sessions.
What happens in the sessions?
You meet one on one with one of our Career Counselors to talk about your values, interests, personality and skills. Then they interpret your personal assessments to help you better understand yourself and your career options. The last step is they help you narrow down your career options so you can make an informed decision and create a strategic plan.
Do I need to make an appointment or can I just come in?
All Career Counseling sessions are made by appointment only. You can call us at 678-839-6431 or Walk-In and set one up on the 3rd Floor Row Hall room 329. We also have 15 minute walk-ins to get quick answers from Career Development Specialists on topics like resume writing, cover letters and interviewing skills.
What personality assessments do you offer, and what are they for?
What is the difference between Academic Advisors and Career Counselors?
Academic Advisors provide academic advice about degree programs, procedures and academic practices. They help students map out their academic plans, select courses and adhere to academic regulations. They also help students understand time management, study skills, note-taking skills, test-taking skills, and learning styles.
Career Counselors help clients clarify their knowledge about their values, interests, personality and skills. They also help clients identify options and information about their career path which equips students to make informed decisions and transition into their ideal career.
