What is career planning?
Career planning involves setting career goals that you desire to achieve in a selected field or occupation coupled with a well thought out plan to get you there. Regardless of your age, it is important to assess where you are if you are to meet your goals and turn your dreams into reality. Getting an education or a skill is the first step in working towards your career dreams.
Why is career planning important to me?
Career Planning is important to you because it helps you discover your talent, skills and abilities and possibilities that you wouldn't have thought of. Many possibilities exist with any career you choose. Having a clear plan for your career can guide you to doing what you want to do in your life—rather than just aimlessly drifting from job to job.
What is the Career Placement Test?
The Career Placement test is taken by every student entering NCU to help them decide what career path suits them best. It is also a way to determine if they need help in deciding what course or career he or she will pursue. The Career placement test is particularly helpful in identifying if a student has difficulty in choosing the path to select after graduating from high school. Students who are unsure about their career path are usually referred to the Counseling Department for further consultation.
How do I arrange for an individual career counseling session?
Career counseling sessions are accommodated on a first come first served basis. However, there is an exception for new students at the beginning of the semester when the first week is reserved exclusively for them.
I have never written a résumé; how do I begin?
