Choosing a Program

A satisfying career can be important to your happiness since it determines the people you work with every day, the amount of leisure time you may have, and your standard of living.

Finding Your Career Path

Good career planning begins with self-knowledge

This means knowledge about your own characteristics – your interests, values, abilities, skills, and personality.  What do you like to do?  You also need to know more about the careers that interest you.

  • Read about the career online or in publications available in OFTC’s Admissions Office, high school guidance offices, Department of Labor Job Centers, and public libraries.
  • Talk to a counselor or advisor at your school, Department of Labor Job Center, or Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC).
  • Talk to people in occupations that interest you.
  • Attend career fairs available in your community and at OFTC.
  • Visit OFTC’s Assessment Center for a career assessment using CareerScope, a computerized career planning software.
