At the San Diego City College Career Center we offer services that can help you find your career path. Your journey begins with discovering who you are, and what special interest and skills you have to offer. We advise that students begin by assessing their V.I.P.S: Values, Interest, Personality and Skills.

Gathering occupational information is an important step in the career planning process. This information includes employment outlook, salary, related occupations, education and training, and job duties. Students are expected and encouraged to identify resources that can assist with the following:

Learn about majors and careers related to one's interests

Learn about academic and career entrance requirements

Investigate education and/or training requirements

Plan academic and career alternatives

Learn job market trends

Career and major field research is the third phase of the career planning process. This consists of information gathering through online and hard copy research, career networking, informational interviewing, volunteering and interning. See below for a list of professional associations for great networking opportunities.

There is no better way to appreciate a career field until you have actually begun working in the industry. However first you must get the job. Stage three in the career planning process is refining and polishing the tools you need to secure a job, internship or volunteer opportunity in your field of interest.
