Career Counseling

Career counseling assists students with the development of their individual career goals.  Discovering a satisfying career takes careful thought and planning.  At NIACC, our Career Counselor can offer you a battery of assessments to help you understand your interests, personality and values.  With this important self-knowledge, you can make a thoughtful, informed decision about your education at NIACC and your career future.

Students can make an appointment with Lisa Brinkley, NIACC Career Counselor, by calling 641-422-4413 or 1-888-GO NIACC, ext. 4413 or stop by the Student Access Center in the Administration Building, AB106.

In career counseling various assessments may be used to help students learn about their interests, personality preferences, values, and aptitudes and how they relate to their choice of college major and future career direction.  Be sure to take advantage of Career Counseling as early as possible to allow you to efficiently complete your education at NIACC.  The danger in postponing career planning is that you may take unnecessary courses or find yourself on the wrong career path.

All counseling is free and confidential.
