Explore a Career

A primary focus of Career & Advising Services is helping students explore their interests, values, abilities, and experiences, and make decisions regarding their futures. That is, conduct Career Exploration. We provide many avenues for students to take in pursuing this personal exploration such as:

  • Career Counseling
  • Kuder Journey
  • Assessment
  • Great Sites for Career Resources and Information  

Career Counseling

All students face decisions about selecting a major and a career direction that is right for them. Career counseling is available to help students explore and define their interests, abilities, values, and other needs as they relate to choosing a major and a career. If you are an LCSC student in need of career guidance or counseling, please contact our office in Reid Centennial Hall 110 and arrange to meet with a Career & Advising professional.

Kuder Journey

Students can acquire an activation code from Career & Advising Services to login anywhere, anytime! Use Kuder Journey to explore career options by learning about yourself, possible majors, career paths, and more! It's a great system with a huge amount of information. Go to Kuder Journey

Career Exploration Class

Each semester, Career & Advising Services offers a class entitled Career Exploration (SD 120). In addition to career assessments and exploration, a multitude of other important topics related to the decision of a major, information about the world-of-work, preparing for the job search and etiquette skills are offered. Watch for semester date and time listings in WarriorWeb under the category: Student Development (SD) 120!

Assessment

Assessments are most often combined with career counseling. This allows for explanation and/or interpretation of results, feedback from the student, and determining a plan for further exploration. In addition to the Kuder Program (free to students), the following assessments are available through the office of Career & Advising Services for a fee. Fees charged to students are listed in brackets after the name of the assessment. For non-student assessment fees, please go to Non-Students.
