Career Counseling


We are here to assist you in career decision-making. Many students are undecided about their career plans or which academic program to pursue. Counselors can assist you with strategies to explore your cultural background, interests, values, skills, and personality and their relationship to your career choices.

Career and Life Planning (CRRS 1010) is a two-credit course offered at Century each semester. This course will help you through the career exploration and decision-making process.
