About CareerScape Counseling
CareerScape Counseling supports you in exploring career options, preparing for employment, and taking the next steps towards achieving your career goals. Our staff helps participants identify their interests, assist with skill-building, and continue to provide support as you embark on your career journey.

Not sure what you want to do or how to get started? We’ll help you find a career that fits your interests and strengths, connect with industry professionals, apply for apprentices or internships, and organize job shadows.
Post-secondary education can include two-year or four-year degrees, certificates, and more! We’ll guide you toward the best options and assist with enrollment.
Resumes, applications, interviews, and paperwork for new jobs can be intimidating, so we're here to help! Plus, we can work with you to overcome barriers to employment like transportation, mental health, and childcare.
Like all Operation Fresh Start programs, you will receive ongoing mentorship and support, even after you’ve completed CareerScape.
