"To get through the hardest journey we need to take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping!" Chinese Proverb

Our belief is that students, armed with in-depth personal knowledge and a realistic and detailed plan, can obtain their work and career goals and move forward with confidence in any direction they choose.

Choosing a Career & Major


Garrett College utilizes CAREER COACH – a customized site designed to help students find a career by providing the most current local data on wages, employment, job postings, and associated education and training. The site also provides a FREE career assessment that considers the individual’s interests, skills, and values and suggests careers based on the results.

It is equally important to pursue the right
MAJOR for you. Garrett College offers Associate in Arts transfer programs, non-degree transfer programs (pre-allied health), and both degree and certificate career advancement programs (non-transfer).

Know yourself, explore your options, choose one option, develop an action plan, and evaluate your decision.


Finding a Job

Garrett College hosts the annual GARRETT COUNTY JOB FAIR (tentatively scheduled for April 27, 2017, 3-6PM in the CARC). This county-wide employment event is a gathering of nearly 60 local and regional employers in search of paid candidates for their organization representing many industries. The Job Fair is hosted in collaboration with the Western Maryland Consortium and the Allegany County One Stop Job Center.

Visit our JOB POSTINGS Bulletin Board in the Learning Center (600 building). Job postings are updated regularly, and dated for your convenience. Information for the Maryland Workforce Exchange can also be found on this bulletin board.

Assess your strengths and goals, research the world of work, create self-marketing tools, network, and conduct your job search thoughtfully.
