In the Career Development Services Office we are passionate about helping students choose and prepare for a career path. We are always looking for ways to connect students to all the services we provide! As you are developing your syllabi and preparing your classes for the spring semester, please keep in mind that we are available to come and speak to your class. Topics include: career exploration, interest inventories, resume writing, interviewing, job shadowing and internships. We can even arrange for your students to do the Career Cruising matchmaker during our visit and each student will receive a list of 40 possible careers based on their interests. We visit many classes each semester and would love to add yours to our list! Just e-mail MaryBethRay@llcc.edu to schedule a visit!
