The Santa Fe College Career Exploration Center (CEC) can help students with the process of choosing their career goals, majors, colleges, and general life direction. CEC staff maintain a broad collection of informational resources and are able to personally assist in planning next steps, whether they include enrolling at Santa Fe College, transferring to another college or university, or connecting with scholarships and employment resources that can help you join the workplace.

CEC offers access to computerized assessments that gauge a person's interests, values, personality and other relevant factors. These assessments can open doors to career fields that may be worthy of investigation. Assessments don't prescribe the exact "right job" – no program can do that. Instead they offer information about your personality and your career possibilities, so that you are better informed and able to make your best career decisions.

CEC is open to all community members as well as current and prospective SF students, graduates, faculty and staff. We also work with community organizations. We want all members of the community to achieve satisfying careers. Our goal is to help you make timely and effective decisions that will lead to your academic achievement and career success. 

Getting Started 

After you contact us, our staff will help you find resources and develop strategies that you can use to make decisions about your career goals. Then, we'll help you create the academic plan you need to achieve them.

We work closely with the Counseling and Wellness Center, Career and Job Placement, Student Development & Leadership, Academic Advisement Center, and the Financial Aid Office to ensure our students utilize these services effectively.
