Career Exploration

Career Exploration is a continual process that includes: 

  •  Gathering information about yourself
  •  Learning about OCC’s programs of study and careers
  •  Integration

Get Started by completing an interest inventory!

Career Coach: short survey that helps you identify programs of study and/or careers that might be of interest.

Many students complete additional surveys including the CliftonStrengths assessment and the World of Work Inventory (WOWI).  Our career advisors will assist you in determining if these are right for you, and are happy to answer your questions!

Next Steps

  •  After exploring your options, discuss your assessment results with our friendly career advisors. They will help you create a customized career exploration plan that works for you!
  •  Continue exploring while you are here through applied learning experiences such as volunteering, service-learning, job shadowing, internships, and study abroad. Don’t miss out on a chance to enrich your curriculum. Keep link in study abroad. Link volunteering and service-learning to Maria’s page. TBD on wording
