Career Counseling and Assessment
Career development is a lifelong process and involves making many important decisions along the way. Career Counselors can assist you in your decision-making process no matter what stage you find yourself.

Whether you are a freshman in the beginning stages of your career exploration, a sophomore or junior looking for the best way to gain experience while you are in college, or a graduating senior or graduate student getting ready for a proactive job search, our staff members are available to assist you. Contact us at 972-883-2943 to schedule an appointment.
