The goal of Career Counseling is to provide you with the information and skills necessary to make good career/life decisions and to develop a plan for how you can get from where you are to where you want to be. RCC on-site career counseling involves individual sessions with a counselor. All information shared is confidential and does not become a part of an academic file. To schedule an appointment, contact: Atticia Bundy, Career Counselor firstname.lastname@example.org 336.342.4261 ext. 2333
Career Counseling Involves:
Self-Assessment - Learning to understand your interests, values, abilities, skills and limitations as they relate to the world of work. Assessment inventories, tests and check-sheets are used and interpreted to generate career possibilities.
Career Research - Gathering career data and information on specific careers about job duties, skills needed, education/training required, realities of the job market, responsibilities and activities involved, salary and growth potential. A library of career resources is available to evaluate compatible career possibilities.
Training/Education - Learning about the training/education requirements and pathways such as: nature of the training, typical career directions, costs (time and monetary), opportunities for experiential learning, type of courses (degree of difficulty), where training is offered. A library of training resources is available to evaluate how you can reach your goal.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can you tell me what I should be? What careers will provide me with security in the future?
Counselors do not have a crystal ball enabling them to know what will be best for you or what the future job market will hold. What we do have are the abilities and access to resources to help you identify, research and evaluate career/life options and plans. You will make decisions for what is right for you. CFNC.org offers a great self-assessment tool. Give it a try here!
How much does career counseling cost?
Rockingham Community College does not charge for any of our career counseling services. The only cost will be the time you invest in planning for your future.
Who can use career counseling?
Anyone! Enrolled students, prospective students, community members, and alumni are all welcome to utilize our services.
How long does career counseling take?
The time needed is determined by the needs of each individual. Some only need specific information that can be obtained in a brief meeting, others utilize career resources and counseling over an extended period of time. You determine what services you want to utilize and the amount of time you want to invest.
