Career Services at Garrett College provides opportunities for students to develop clear career goals and design action plans to reach those goals, including obtaining relevant career experience and developing the skills necessary to conducting an effective job search.
Choosing a Career & Major
Career Coach is a FREE resource designed to help students explore careers by providing the most current local data on wages, employment, education and training, as well as a career assessment that considers the student’s interests, skills, and values.
Choosing a Major is equally as important. Garrett College offers Associate of Arts and Associate of Science transfer programs, non-degree transfer programs, and both degree and certificate career advancement programs.
Know yourself, explore your options, choose one option, develop an action plan, and evaluate your decision.
