Career Exploration

The NMJC Counseling Office welcomes NMJC students to talk with a counselor to explore career options. Students are encouraged to take a brief career interest test at www.mynextmove.org and then visit with a counselor about the results.

The My Next Move website also has information for more than 900 career options and allows users to research educational requirements, skills & abilities needed, and the job outlook for these careers.
