Counseling Corner: Student Services Can Lead To Student Success

Graduation is a major milestone in a student’s life. Achieving your academic goals is a great accomplishment; it also marks an important transition in a student’s life as they prepare to either enter the professional world or move into a new field or position relevant to their studies. Joining the workforce can be a daunting task, but you won’t have to do it alone: Rio Salado College has student services available to help guide you through the sometimes-confusing process of job hunting.

As a student at Rio Salado, it’s important you know that the college’s doors are open to you even after you graduate. Rio’s career services are available to current students and graduates.
