Career Planning

College of The Albemarle’s (COA) advisors offer career education activities to help you with decision making and career planning. The extra time and effort you take now can pay off with a lifetime of job satisfaction and income. Career planning involves learning about yourself, exploring different careers, and using tools and resources to help you find your niche — the best career fit for your unique talents, abilities, skills, personality, interests and values.

If you’re undecided about your major and your future, or you’re making a career change, contact one of our advisors and use the links below to begin your career search. COA also has career centers on the Elizabeth City (AE 125) and Dare County Campus (DC 226) with resources to assist you in your career search.

Career Tools offers a free career planning guide to help you match your personality, interests, values and abilities with over 900 careers.

CFNC Career Assessment Guide, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, offers employment information, inspiration and helpful tools for job seekers, students, businesses and career professionals, including links to ONET and the Occupational Outlook Handbook.
