Self Exploration

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”
       ― Barack Obama


At the San Diego City College Career Center we offer services that can help you find your career path. Your journey begins with discovering who you are, and what special interest and skills you have to offer.  We advise that students begin by assessing their V.I.P.S: Values, Interest, Personality and Skills.
