Career Services for Students

Career counselors take a developmental approach to guide you through a process of career exploration and decision-making.  You have the opportunity to learn more about your occupational identity, the world of work and how it is organized, how to investigate careers, and effective career decision making techniques. 

Career and Transfer Center staff help you to develop skills essential for a successful job search.  Staff will teach you how to develop effective resumes and cover letters, interview successfully, network, and integrate the Internet into a winning job search strategy.  

Career and Transfer Center is a member of CCJobNet. Students can view job listings sent to 14 partner community colleges by registering at www.collegecentral.com/oakton/. Career and Transfer Center also coordinates the Student Employee Program. You have easy access the online application at oaktonstudentemployee.applicantpro.com/jobs/.
