Group career advising sessions are available to current and prospective Lethbridge College students. These two-part sessions assist you in identifying your career goals and developing effective strategies for achieving career satisfaction and success. During the first session, you complete an online interest inventory. In your second session, you meet one-on-one with an advisor to go over your assessment and results and to look at your options.
Individual career advising sessions are also available in two-part sessions. The first session typically takes about 20 minutes as you complete a career assessment. A second session is scheduled for another day to review your results with an advisor, which typically takes an hour.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a cost for career advising, and who is eligible?
All career advising sessions are free. Career assessments cost $15.75 including GST.
How long does individual career advising take?
This depends upon the individual and which career assessments that they wish to take. The first appointment is about one hour as you share information with the counsellor and complete the career assessments. A second appointment, about one hour, is scheduled to review the results of the career assessments. Additional appointments may be scheduled upon your request.
Will my career assessments tell me which program of study or occupation I should pursue?
Career assessment is the first step in the career planning process. Your advisor will review the results with you and help you identify what to consider next. The career planning process is individualized and everyone moves through this process differently.
Will the career advisor help me to write a resume and look for work?
The career advisor will help you to decide the type of work that you want. Career Services will help you to get that job. Career Services offers one-on-one appointments to help students with resume writing, interviews, and job search strategies.
