What We Do

If you are an enrolled or prospective RSCC student and undecided on your major or career, we have resources available to help you make that very important decision.

How to Decide on a Career/Major

  1. Take the online career assessment. This takes about half an hour to do the assessments and explore results. Remember you are making a life-changing decision, so spend several hours exploring your results. Roane State has a subscription to make this free to you, so take advantage of it!
  2. Explore career planning websites which list hot jobs and explain types of careers in more detail.
  3. Counselors are available to offer guidance throughout the entire career-decision making process. This is an individual journey for each student which varies in length, and it takes dedicated time,effort, and reflection on the student's part.

Also, keep in mind that no single test can tell you "what you should be," but they are useful tools in learning about yourself and about available career options. Use them!

How To Contact Career Services
