The Career Development Center offers support and assistance to BCC students and alumni throughout the career development process.
Whether you are just beginning to consider career options, or you have several ideas and would like some help sorting them out, our office will help you.
Meeting with a Career Counselor
You and the career counselor will develop strategies for exploring your interests and investigating various career fields.
The career development process is a combination of self-exploration – clarifying your interests and values – and investigation in the community, via the internet and other resources, and one-on-one meetings with those working in the field. At times, informational interviews with people in selected career fields may be the best way to learn about particular workplaces and jobs.
- Self-assessment Exercises
- Decision Making
- Informational Interviews
- Experiential Education, via Internships and part-time/summer Jobs
