Career Resource Center

The Counseling and Student Development Division provides career planning support services through its Career Resource Center as a component of the career counseling and academic advising processes.

The primary purpose of the Career Resource Center (CRC) is to provide a variety of career related resources necessary to assist students in planning for a career after college.

MCC Counselors and CRC staff provide support services to students using the Center. In addition, Counseling and Advising Faculty refer students to the Center for assistance in guiding those students through career assessment and career exploration. Students are also encouraged to visit the Center to explore the world of careers.

The center provides assistance as students explore and select a career, as they research transfer colleges, and as they develop the skills needed in the 21st century workforce with resources and assessments. The Center is open to alumni and members of the community, as well as students. The center also serves as an instructional lab for faculty who wish to bring their class in for career-related purposes.
