Choosing a Program
The Elkhart Area Career Center offers 30 programs in a wide range of industries. Many students have a clear idea of an industry or program that appeals to them, while some students recognize they could benefit significantly by attending the EACC - but are unsure which program would be a good fit.
Below is a drop-down list of EACC Programs based in general areas of study that may help a student identify programs of interest. Learn details about each program here: EACC Programs
Still unsure? Learn more about the type of industries and jobs that may appeal to you based on your interests, skills, and work preferences by completing the Interest Inventory linked below.
Do you work better in groups or individually? Is your ideal workplace setting quiet or loud, exciting or calm, indoors or outdoors? Do you like consistent routines or ongoing, new challenges? Do you thrive in presenting to a group or doing behind-the-scenes work?
All of these job attributes can contribute to identifying which industries or jobs might be a good fit!
