Career Development & Counseling Center

Working Toward Your Success!

The Career Development and Counseling Center at Middlesex Community College helps students and alumni in the areas of academic advising, transfer planning, career decision-making and job opportunities. Our goal is to provide you with appropriate assistance from the beginning of your academic career through graduation.

During your years at Middlesex, you may need help in several ways. If these questions are ones you find yourself asking, we may be able to help:

  • What do I really want to do?
  • Does declaring a major mean declaring a career?
  • Will Middlesex courses transfer?
  • There are so many careers, how do I choose?
  • How do I write a resume & cover letter?
  • How do I find out what’s “out there?”

Please visit the many links and resources on this Web site, call or visit the Career Development & Counseling Services Center. We take pride in helping you find the information and resources you need for your career success.
