Career and Transfer Services

With 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 and Transition Services located at all IRSC campuses.

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.

  • disseminating employer information
  • facilitating direct job referrals
  • 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.
