Lehigh Carbon Community College

College isn’t just about getting a job. It’s about finding your calling.

The Office of Vocation and Career Services provides vocation and career planning resources and services to Reinhardt students, alumni, staff, faculty, parents, and employers.

A vocation is more than a career choice. Your vocation is created by the roles you play and the actions you take, which can range from a job to family life, or from being active in a community to taking time for yourself.

No matter what your major, we can help you discover the vocation that best matches your talents, dreams, and aspirations. These include networking and exploration, finding a job or internship, choosing a major, and applying to graduate school.

If you don’t fit into one of these categories or maybe you don’t know where to start, please contact our office so that we can help you take control of your career aspirations.

All of our services are completely FREE!
