  Explore Careers, Choose a Major, Have a Plan! 
   
Welcome to the Fall 2012 academic year! The Career and Life Planning (CLP) Center is the place for all students when it comes to choosing a major and/or career.  We have friendly staff and experienced career counselors with the latest tools to help you in this decision-making process. We encourage students to come into the CLP Center to utilize our resources to explore pertinent information that leads to career and educational goals.  The more questions you ask, the more informed you will be to make a sound decision. By coming into the CLP Center, questions will get answered, like:
  • What careers truly match my interests and personality?
  • What tasks would I be performing on the job?
  • Which educational path should I take?
  • What more should I be doing to prepare for my career?

From the FC Career Planning System to the CACareerCafe to the CLP Process, there is something, if not all, for everyone!  Please keep in mind that most of our online resources require an activation code, so stop by or give us a call. In addition, there are upcoming activities sponsored by the Career and Life Planning Center, so mark your calendar for what will be coming in the days, weeks, and months ahead!

Newly Revised Assessments...
Less time to complete all three! 
The free Fullerton College Career Planning System (powered by Kuder, Inc.), a newly enhanced system, offers students an opportunity to take three valid and reliable assessments in 20 minutes or less.  The Kuder Career Interests Assessment provides students the opportunity to explore their interests while generating a Top Career Pathways report. It also matches their results to specific career clusters, related occupations and educational programs. The Kuder Skills Confidence Assessment allows students to rate a variety of tasks and activities according to their skill level and view results as they correspond with career pathways and clusters. With these assessment results, students can explore career options that highlight their current abilities, choose an educational path that increases their skill level, and discover career clusters that match their interests and skills. The Kuder Work Values Assessment helps students discover workplace values that are important to them by rating workplace characteristics. This assessment generates a Work Values Results report that ranks five workplace values: Workplace, Innovation, Accomplishment, Prestige, and Income.  Come to the Career and Life Planning Center to get your activation code today!
 
Still Undecided? Follow the Career and Life Planning (CLP) Process
If you are undecided with choosing a major and/or career, then you might want to consider following the CLP Process. This process assists you with identifying what you're good at; how your skills, talents, values, and interests translate into work; and where and how to find that work.  There are only three steps in the process and are the best steps to take while you are a Fullerton College student. Come to the CLP Center to learn more.
