A staff of professional counselors is available to all enrolled and prospective students to help them achieve life and career goals. Before individuals can intelligently make career decisions, they should evaluate their abilities, interests, needs and potential. They then should explore the world of work to determine what occupations best satisfy their own interests, personalities and objectives. Counselors provide individual and group career counseling opportunities for students. Various interest inventories and other career planning instruments, including computerized career guidance and occupational information systems, are available to assist individuals and groups in the career planning process.
Personal issues and concerns can sometimes impede studentsí progress toward meeting their goals. Counselors are available to discuss these concerns and will make referrals to community providers when appropriate.
The counselors also assist students in such academically related areas as probation counseling, change of academic major, academic fresh start and students with undecided majors. Workshops include test taking, study skills, time management, stress reduction, values clarification, career planning and test-anxiety management.
A full array of services are available to enrolled and prospective students as well as to alumni.
Interested individuals should make appointments in advance to see a counselor. Every effort is made to accommodate walk-ins. For more information about the services offered by Counseling and Career Services, visit midlandstech.edu/counseling.
