The Career Services Office offers a variety of resources and tools to help you choose a major, plan your career, or find employment.
Career Planning: We are here to help students make educational and career plans. If you need help choosing a major or are considering making a career change but are uncertain about which direction to pursue, you may want to begin by taking one of our free Interest Inventories and then work with a counselor to discuss your career options. LCCC students may access Career Cruising online or make an appointment with Career Services by calling 570-740- 0450 or 570-740-0456 to take the Strong Interest Inventory. To access Career Cruising, an online guidance program, log into the Student Intranet, select your appropriate campus location, and download the worksheet. Access codes and directions for using Career Cruising can be found on the Career Cruising worksheet.
Job Search: We can help you design a resume, write a cover letter, prepare for an interview, and show you where to find job openings for your major. We can also provide information about local salaries and employment projections, and names of potential employers or companies.
Job Announcements: We offer an extensive Job Announcements service. If you register with us, we will mail any job notices that we receive from employers, appropriate to your major, to your home. Click the Job Announcement link to view full-time and part-time positions, summer jobs, and internships. If you are a current student or alumnus, you may post your resume on our web site. Simply prepare your resume in Microsoft WORD or as a PDF file, and then send it as an “Attachment” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Job Fairs: Each year Career Services hosts two Job Fairs, one in February for Health Sciences majors, and one in April for all majors. Both freshman and sophomore students are encouraged to attend. Dates, times, and participating employers are posted under "Upcoming Events."
Who Uses Career Services? Career Services is for anyone, at any age or stage of their career, who asks themselves the following questions:
- What should I major in?
- What can I do with a major in ______?
- Where should I transfer to after LCCC?
- What's a "resume"?
- How do I look for a job?
- What will an employer ask me in an interview?
- What should I do with the rest of my life?
It is never too early, or too late, to prepare for a better career or employment situation.
