Interest and Aptitude Inventory

Knowledge of a person’s interests and aptitudes is an important component in developing educational and career plans. Success in a given career is strongly influenced by interest in the field and the potential to learn and excel in that area of work. Standardized career assessment is available to assist students and potential students in exploring their interests and abilities in areas of employment. Career assessment tools currently being utilized to assist the student and counselor in making an informed career path choice include: Career Scope, Georgia Career Information System (GCIS), and GA College 411. Contact the Student Success Centers to schedule a time to complete an assessment.

Career Counseling

Career counseling is available upon request to both potential and current students. Counseling sessions provide individuals with the information necessary to make more realistic and informed choices about careers. Career counselors meet with students to review all program options (including wage data), discuss the students’ interests, academic history, work history, and other areas of concern. Information available to students includes:

  • Extensive information on individual programs of study
  • Employment trends and salary ranges from regional and national sources including Georgia Career Information System (GCIS)
  • In-depth program information provided through meetings with program coordinators or other instructors
