Career & Majors Explorers

Roxbury Community College's Career Development & Internship Services (CDIS) offers students a variety of Career Assessments.

Career Self-Assessment is a process by which students learn more about their interests, skills and values; career fields; connecting majors to careers; and making the transition to a four-year college, and/or to employment.  Because there are numerous self-assessment tests based on different methods, we recommend that students take at least two or three assessments and compare the results for commonalities.

RCC recommends the following steps in exploring Careers and Majors:

STEP 1: Self-Assessment
STEP 2: Major Exploration
STEP 3: Making a Decision
