Career Counseling Services

Research shows that:

  • 25% of freshmen leave their first college to attend another school by sophomore year, many reporting that their needs were not met.

  • 31% of college entrants drop out before they complete their first semester.

  • Over 50% of all college students make at least one change in their college major.

  • 69% of adults believe they did not receive sufficient or satisfactory career guidance, and if able to repeat their adolescence, they would insist upon comprehensive career guidance.

  • College is recommended to some students for whom another post-high school experience would be more appropriate while other students are discouraged from attending college even though it is an appropriate choice.

  • Students who know what they want to pursue occupationally are more successful in college than those who do not have a career direction.

1. Investing in career exploration now can preclude making expensive curriculum or school changes later. Changing a major or trade can cost $20,000 or more.

 

2. The outcome of a quality career assessment is a sound investment that can save frustration and lost time for students and parents.

 

3. Determining what to major in should come before determining the college or technical school, not vice versa.

 

4. Having a clear understanding of one’s skills, abilities, and interests will greatly enhance making an informed decision about one’s future.

 

5. Determining a career path based on career assessment is the starting point to seek an appropriate school or college.

 

6. Getting a job in a desired field requires specialization that should be based on preference and suitability.

 

7. Job availability after college or technical school is critically important.
