Labor Market Information
We look forward to assisting our students and alumni with career exploration, internship, job preparation and job searching techniques. Employers, we are very excited to help you recruit our students and alumni by accessing our College Central Network system.
The Career Center has collaborated with Student Service and campus departments introducing students to possible employment with new and existing partnerships. We provide workshops to students entering and re-entering the workforce. Students first is our primary goal.
The Career Center can also assess student values, interests, strengths, and abilities through career
assessments. (Example: Eureka Self-Directed Search and Work Values).
The assessment is administered and interpreted in the center, if you are in need of this service. You may also find other Career Resources through our online College Center Network (CCN) .
This network provide other useful tools in your major and career exploration journey, as well as job seeking opportunities and postings. To find out about additional campus services browse through CTE and Student Services at our website at www.lasc.edu. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
