Career Advising

Career Advising is an important component of academic advising.  Advisors assist you in developing short-term goals that align with your long-term career goal. 

Career development is more than just deciding on a major and what job you want to get when you graduate. It really is a lifelong process, meaning that throughout your life you will change, situations will change, and you will continually have to make career and life decisions.

Our goal is to not only help you make the decisions you need to make now but to give you the knowledge and skills you need to make future career and life decisions.

Career Assessment

To help you gain a better understanding of your motivational traits, personal work style, values, skills, aptitudes and personality, you must first complete a career assessment.  The results of a career assessment will help you to begin researching careers that match your preferences, strengths and values. At Atlantic Cape, we have a great tool to help you with your assessment, Career Coach.

Career Coach provides an interest assessment which can help you identify your predominant personal interests. Take the short six question version or the longer in-depth 60 question version. Then explore career paths and job titles in each suggested career path. Keep in mind the following while exploring Career Coach.

  • It is not a test – there is no right or wrong answer

  • It makes suggestions – it does not tell you which career to pursue

  • A career assessment is a great place to start learning about yourself and exploring potential careers

Career Exploration

Are you confused about your major or your career path? Career Advising offers a few opportunities to explore career options.

Once you have the results from Career Coach, bring the assessment to one of our Advisors. Make an appointment and we will assist you in reviewing results and researching careers.

We also offer career workshops offered across our three campuses. In a group setting, you will learn about the resources available along with self-assessments you can take to identify your career path, major and degree. To see our upcoming workshops, visit our workshops page
