Career Counseling

The Anoka-Ramsey counseling team celebrates diversity.  We are dedicated to ensuring an inclusive, equitable, person-centered counseling experience for everyone.

The process of career development can be exciting and intimidating. Like many worthwhile endeavors, the key is to take it one step at a time. Counselors will work with you through the career exploration process. Feel free to arrange an appointment at the Cambridge or Coon Rapids Campus. 

There is an option to register for two different Career Exploration Courses:

  • CAOR 1100 Career Exploration Workshop (1 Credit) focused on self-exploration and occupational research
  • CAOR 1102 Career Exploration (2 Credits) focused on self-exploration, occupational research and job search strategies.
