In support of Clinton Community College, Career Services provides students the opportunities to develop personally, navigate career and educational pathways, and successfully access experience across the region. 

The Career Services Office offers a variety of services that are intended to benefit the educational experiences of the entire student population. At Clinton Community College, effective career planning involves an understanding of the relationship between Career Exploration and Academic Purpose. This incorporates personal awareness about occupational/personal interests, choosing a degree program that enhances this interest, and then making a connection between the degree and employment or transfer opportunities.

Career planning also includes understanding degree requirements, why those requirements are important to educational goals, how those goals will impact academic purpose (transfer or work)all within a timeframe. Career Services is available for students to discuss these issues so that the decision making process is based on understanding the information.

When students are unsure of their academic/personal purpose, career counseling can help identify individual abilities, skills, values and interests, and relate them to the world of work. Through professional counseling, Career Services provides a combination of career/interest inventories, advisement and experiences to assist students in clarifying the career/degree decision making process. The results of these can facilitate action for connecting personal interest with academic purpose.

Transfer planning is not difficult, however, it is a process. Items to be considered include; college visits, applications, official transcripts, credit evaluation, essays, academic requirements, financial aid, housing arrangements, major choice, etc. Career Services in tandem with Transfer Counselors can help you understand the requirements and process of transferring, so that it is a rewarding experience.
