There are different ways to explore a career or major and determine which path may be right for you. The following are some options offered to Shoreline Community College students.
Career Counseling and Educational Planning
Shoreline students can meet individually with counselors to explore their educational and career goals. Counselors can assist students in identifying interests, researching occupations, overcoming obstacles and gaining confidence. Educational planning provides individuals with information about school programs and the training needed for specific occupations. There are NO FEES charged for career counseling appointments. Drop by the Advising and Counseling Center (FOSS Building, Room 5229) or call (206) 546-4559 to make an appointment.
Personality and Interest Assessments
Assessing your unique personality, strengths and pattern of interests can be helpful in organizing information about yourself and making the major selection or career search process easier. We offer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Strong Interest Inventory. Fees per test are $20 for current Shoreline students. If you would like more information, please make an appointment with a counselor to talk about this option.
