Career & Job Placement Services

‌Houston and its dynamic job market rivals most major cities in the United States in its diversity and economic output. Houston employers are increasingly in need of skilled and diverse potential employees in their talent pipelines in order to project economic success many years into the future. These are just some of the reasons why Houston Community College (HCC) has enhanced its Career Services offering.  

A new department, Career & Job Placement Services, will consist of six Career & Job Placement Services Centers strategically located throughout the HCC system. Each Career Center supports and serves students at the six main campuses and their centers (satellite campuses).  

Career & Job Placement Services connects students enrolled at HCC to the Houston economy by supporting the Centers of Excellence workforce programs. Enrolling in these workforce programs will provide Houstonians with the skills and training needed to thrive in the local economy.

These services are offered to ensure HCC students can compete for and obtain the best career opportunities in the Houston job market. Even if a student has not identified a career path, it is recommended that students become familiar with their local Center for Career & Job Placement Services as soon as they begin attending classes. This is where HCC Eagles will learn to soar to new heights in their careers!

CAREER ASSESSMENTS 

Career assessments are tools utilized by the general public to dig deeper regarding career options as well as finding purpose in life. There are a variety of Career assessments for students to take and we have identified a few below. Career assessments provide guidance not prescriptive answers for which career path to pursue:

Career Coach is a great career assesment to take in order to begin discovering your calling. We highly recommend HCC Eagles take the 60 question assessment in order to recieve an in depth assessment result. Students should always visit the nearest Career & Job Placement Services Center to discuss the results of their assessment with a Career Specialist. Please bring your assessment results with you!

True Colors  is a Career assessment that focuses on personality. This assessment is great for proactive students interested in emotional intelligence and ways to leverage soft-skills in the workplace. It is important to be aware of your personality and how it drives the way others percieve you in a professional environment. What are your True Colors and what will they reveal about your career choices?
