Refer a Student

Thank you for taking time to focus on your students' career development needs.  We are happy to help either by consulting with you directly or by meeting with a student you have referred. Career and Employment Services assists students in all stages of their career planning and decision-making process. The assistance provided by career counselors is different from that provided by academic advisers; we do not assist the student in selecting a specific courses to meet academic requirements. Career counselors focus on helping the student develop a personal strategy to meet their career goals beyond their current degree program through:

  • Uncovering their skills, interests and values.  MyPlan (Career Assessment) is one way to accomplish this. 
  • Provide career counseling to assist the student with career related decisions
  • Effectively articulating skills learned both in and outside the classroom
  • Polishing resumes or cover letters
  • Creating a job or internship search strategy
  • Preparing for interviews
  • Connecting to professional networks

Career and Employment Services has career counselors located on the Washington Street campus. However, with some advanced planning we can meet you or your student(s) at all of Amarillo College's campuses.  

To refer a student for individual career advising, direct them to our office. We are located in the Student Services Center or they can call us at 806-371-5147.
