Career and Transition Services

Crews HallWith thousands of careers to choose from, many students find the selection overwhelming. For this reason, IRSC provides professional career counseling, interest surveys, and an assessment of skills and abilities through Career & Transition Services located on the Main Campus, Mueller Campus in Vero Beach, and Chastain Campus in Stuart. An extensive library of books, magazines, and pamphlets offers a wealth of information on existing jobs, the outlook for future employment, the qualifications and characteristics that each job demands, and the rewards and drawbacks of those occupations. Choices, CareerScope and Bridges software are available to help students increase their self-awareness and develop career decision-making skills and education plans. Assistance is also provided through the Florida Virtual Campus for Students (formally known as FACTS.org) at www.flvc.org which links academic data for all public universities, state college and community colleges in the State of Florida.

Career & Transition Services also assist students, alumni and IRSC employees in securing employment in the field of study for which they are trained. Services include assistance in preparing employment applications, resumes and cover letters, interviewing techniques and preparation, employer information, direct job referrals and furnishing resumes to potential employers. Using the Career Portfolio online tool, students can document jobs and internships, record references and upload their resume to potential employers. A current listing of job openings in the local area is available online and is posted at all IRSC campuses.
