Students and Alumni

Our services are organized below as three basic steps in the career planning process. You can either start at the beginning and go through them in order, or go directly to the step you want to learn more about.

Cal State L.A. alumni and other clients, please click here for information on your eligibility for services.

1) Know Yourself - The first step in career planning is to be sure of who you are and what you want from life, to build a career that's best for you. You should be aware of your interests, personality, aptitudes and values, and have a process for evaluating and making decisions.


  • COUNSELING - talk one-on-one with a professional to explore and put it all together. We give tests as needed in that process, and there are also online assessment tools available. By appointment or walk-in.
  • ONLINE SOURCES - Articles and self-help on career planning and more.
