Career Counseling

University of Kentucky Counseling Center: Consultation and Psychological Services (UKCC) offers Career Decision-Making Workshops and individualized face-to-face feedback to assist students with the major/career decision making process. 


Major/Career Decision Making workshop (*drop-in)

This workship is for students who have not picked a major, those who are struggling in their majors and those who are disinterested in their majors, and those who are having difficulty making career decisions. The workshop format is 45-50 minutes of interactive activities that introduce students to steps involved in making important life decisions. Students will learn more about their interests and values as well as resources to help in their decision making.

Career Counseling Appointments:

If you need further assistance than attending the Major/Career Decision making workshop, you may receive Career Counseling Sessions at the UKCC. Sessions focus on aspects of decision making including assessing interests, personality preferences, values, skills, decision making process, as well as factors (e.g., mental health concerns, family conflict) that might be impacting your ability to make a decision. To begin career counseling at the UKCC, either come in Monday-Friday 9am-3pm for an initial consult or call 859-257-8701 to schedule an initial consult. During your first appointment, you can let your clinician know that you are interested in receiving career counseling services. 


Career Assessment

Inventories such as the Strong Interest Inventory (SII), Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and the Campbells Interest and Skills Survey (CISS) are available at no cost to students through the Counseling Center. The results provide students information that can help them through the career/major decision-making process. If you are interested in taking one of these assessments, please come in Monday-Friday 9am-3pm for an initial consult or call 859-257-8701 to schedule an initial consult.
