The Career Center (CDC) helps students explore educational and career options. The CDC is located in room M175 in Meggers Hall and is open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday-Friday. A wide range of career exploration resources and college catalogs are available and most may be checked out for up to two weeks through the Office of Student Services. There are also workshops offered throughout the year to assist in selecting a major and career planning. Check with the front desk for an up-to-date listing of workshops.
The CDC also has two computer work stations, complete with internet connections. If you’re interested in career or college exploration, please make an appointment with Travis Ramage or Jim Dzimiela.

To take the free assessment, contact Jim Dzimiela (email@example.com) in Student Services to make an appointment.
