Career Target Program

A comprehensive career development program for CPCC Students, The Career Target Program will help you make a career decision with the assistance of a trained career counselor. The program will help you explore and gather information about yourself and careers, so you may make an informed choice about your best career match. You will discuss your goals and expectations, use assessments to generate lists of careers, define your skills, interests and personality, and discover what you are passionate about. Your counselor will help you through the 6 sections that make up the Career Target Program:

  • Assessing Myself
  • Discovering Who I Am
  • Targeting My Options
  • Taking Aim
  • My Equipment
  • You
  • targ

    After listening to your concerns, your counselor will suggest activities that will be targeted to your needs. As you complete each section, both of you will discuss what you wrote. Since the counselor can be objective, he or she might point out:

    • New career options
    • Areas that might conflict with previous things you discussed
    • How different facets of your life relate to a career
    • Potential pitfalls
