RCC Career Services encourages student career development by linking students to comprehensive services that educate and empower students to make excellent career decisions through career exploration and job search skills and strategies. Selecting a career path is one of the most significant decisions a person will make in life. Career planning is a multistep process that includes self-assessment, exploration, selection, and employment. Understanding one’s own preferences, transferable skills, work values, and personality is critical in the process. Each student's situation and needs are unique; as a result, the process and format may vary.
