Counseling and Advising Services

A JCCC counselor can help you achieve your educational and career goals through academic advising and personal counseling. Meet with one of us early in your time at the college and often. The Career Development Center can help you see how your college major can translate into a career option – a chosen profession that integrates your interests, personality, values, skills, talents and education.
