Career & Life Planning

Students who are undecided about a career or major and/or need assistance setting an academic goal should seek career counseling. Students who have an academic plan based on a career goal will usually have an easier time selecting their courses each semester.

Career counseling will:
  • help a student become more self-aware
  • teach students about the career planning process that includes:
      • an examination of their interests, skills, life values
      • information about the world of work and job families.

Steps to follow

  1. Career exploration is a multi-step process that starts with a self-assessment of your personality and your strongest interests, skills and values. Please visit the Transfer/Career Center in room M-101 to take the Mybers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) Online Personality assessment and/or the MyPlan Career Assessments or visit the Career Services Self-Exploration website.
  2. Once you complete the assessments you can schedule an appointment with a Career Counselor to interpret your results and help you explore related careers.  
  3. Finally, you will need to look into the job market for your chosen field to assess what opportunities are available. All of these steps can be addressed through resources available to you at San Diego City’s Transfer/Career Center.
