Career Planning/Goal Setting/Job Search Tools

Career Planning
Exploring your career options is the first step to planning your future. The more you know about career choices, the more prepared you’ll be to select the career that is right for you. At CVTC, we have several resources available to match your interests with a rewarding career. The first step is to take the online Career Assessment. After answering a series of questions, you'll be matched to occupations, be able to explore careers, and see a list of CVTC programs that are a good fit for your interests. Expect to spend about 20-30 minutes taking the assessment.
