The Career Center (located in the Counseling & Career Center) helps students explore careers and programs of study through self-assessments, offers assistance with refining job search techniques, and provides access to job postings and career fairs.

Career Exploration and Assessment

Students can complete online self-paced assessments, explore careers, and gather information on education options through FOCUS. Students who take advantage of this planning tool make better decisions about their educational goals and learn how to manage their careers. First time users must create an account using NHCC as the access code when prompted. For more information, review the FOCUS presentation.

College Information

The Career Center helps students connect occupation interests to related programs of study. Transfer guides outlining transfer requirements of four-year degrees at other Minnesota colleges and universities are available in the Advising Center for students who plan to continue their education. Contact the Academic Advising Center if you need assistance with transferring.
