CAREER EXPLORATION

Our IDEAS Career Interest Assessment tool is very helpful for all ages and all stages of career and education decision making. The assessment takes about 10-15 minutes and a guided process with post assessment Career Information System initial exploration takes perhaps another 30 minutes. The Career Interest Assessment is free and available to registered students in our MySFCC system. It is available online inside our Career Coachdatabase, it is offered in First Year Student Success classes, and it can be done on a drop-in basis, M-F 9-5.

ARE YOU READY TO WORK?

At different stages in our lives we move into and out of employment situations. We may work part time, full time, or sporadically. We may be self employed, we may stop to care for children, aging parents, or disabled family members – or go through our own personal challenges.

Being a beginner or having had disruptions can leave us unsure about our ability to do the work or compete for a position. The resources and information on this web page (listed in the left margin as Ready to Work) are designed to help you assess, update, and address work concerns. Our Encore Careers web page is designed for the growing age 50+ population who often have developed a different attitude and changed values about work, and have specific concerns, including worries of age discrimination.
