Welcome Freshmen!

Picture of careers

Check your Cialfo account under "assessments" to access the Career Inventories. These will assist you in thinking about careers and future planning (and are part of ICAP)

Many students experience a "mini" crisis when trying to figure out what they will do after college. The options are unlimited and this can often cause some "paralysis by analysis". This then, in turn, can lead to apathy or even anger about making future choices.

Rather than making a student decide on a career instead focus on strengths, talents, and what they like to do. This will help them to overcome the fear and begin the exploration process.


One of the best websites to start this journey of exploration is My Colorado Journey. By simply making an account students then have the freedom to take career and interest inventories, explore different jobs, and learn about valuable skills needed to become and stay employed.
