Individual Career Counseling
Individual career counseling is available for Hilbert students and alumni seeking one-on-one assistance. Career testing, exploration of personality factors in career choice, assistance in gathering information about occupational areas of interest, resume review, and other related areas can be discussed. Individual career counseling is available by appointment.
To clarify your interests, skills and values, you can take the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory, which is offered by the Career Development Center. The inventory will help identify your interest patterns and specific occupations that are most compatible to you.
Remember that to find a satisfying career, you must make a good match between your interests and the demands of a job, and between your personality and a work environment.
