I am considering returning to school. Can I get help with this decision?Returning to school, depending on the day, can seem exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Allow us to help you sort through the processes of returning to school. We can discuss the “life stuff” you have going on that will impact your ability to return and be successful in your classes. If you would like to talk with a an advisor, please call the Student Success Center at (970) 339-6251 to make an appointment.
If I have been laid off, how can you help me? Can I get help as a community member?On a daily basis, we talk to people in the middle of career transitions and changes. Whether you are a current student looking for that first career choice, have been laid off, or are looking for a career change, we would welcome the chance to talk with you about the transition. Our goal is to through the Career Counseling process provide you with strategies, structure, and information. If you are not a current student, you can complete the Career Counseling process. However, there will be a $50 fee, paid at the time of the 1st appointment. Contact Career Services at (970) 339-6251 for more information.
What kind of Career Assessments do you offer?We have a variety of career exploration resources in our "toolbox". We use the MBTI and Strong's Interest Inventory through the Career Counseling process. Career assessments are not the “gospel truth”, but rather generators of information and ideas that can provide useful pieces of information in the career decision-making process.
Can I get help choosing a major? I have a major selected, but I am not sure what careers it can lead to.Absolutely. As you invest in your education, it is imperative that you know why you are attending college. Your success in college is directly related to your level of self-motivation, interest in the coursework and knowledge as to how your educational path NOW related to your FUTURE career goals.
