Steps To Choosing A Major

Our Career Center works closely to prepare students to reach their career goals and support faculty/staff to embed career-focused activities within the classroom. We support students in being intentional with their holistic experiences through the exploration of interests, development of skills, and preparation for the workforce.

Meet with a Career Peer Ambassador

Career Peer Ambassadors are campus student leaders who are trained to facilitate the resources available through the Southwestern College Career and Transfer Connections department. Students selected to serve as Career Peer Ambassadors participate in intensive summer training sessions with our Career Counselors and Career and Transfer Connections department staff to develop transferable work-related skills, and participate in professional development trainings as needed. They promote and deliver informational presentations about career services within classrooms, around the college campus, and at career services events. They also provide walk-in individual and group peer-to-peer career coaching sessions. Stop by our front desk to meet with a Career Peer Advisor (CPA).
