What does the Career Center offer?

The Career Center offers students the opportunity to research careers and find out which ones would be best suited for them.  We have many computer programs, websites and books that give students a wealth of knowledge.  We also have information about majors.  It is important for students to understand that they are able to do a single career through many different majors.


What tools are available to help research different careers?

Our center offers many different resources in a variety of forms.  We have a software program called Eureka that allows students to find their interests, connect them to a career and then match to a college and major that is right for them.


How do I go about taking a Career Interest Test?

There are two types of Career Interest Tests.  The first are the kind that are free.  These are connected to a variety of websites.  Students are able to access them from their own computers or they can use the computers in the Career Center. 

The second kind are the ones that have a small fee attached.  These can be taken upon recommendation by a counselor.  Upon recommendation the student pays the fee and then is given a password to access the tests online.  When they have completed the test the counselor will go over the results with them.


Who is eligible to use the Career Center?

Our Career Center services are available to any current Merced College student.  Our services are also extended to former students for up to 2 years after they have left Merced College.
