academic, career, family or personal life in general.

values, interests and job preferences are being offered. Test results are interpreted for the student's own self-awareness, growth and

results, and interview notes are safely filed in individual envelopes and updated yearly.

Students on probation and those with low grades are given assistance and dealt with individually to find out possible causes of their
poor performance. The program helps students develop proper attitudes and more effective skills in coping with academic
difficulties.

Counselors provide an honest feedback to students regarding their strengths and weaknesses based on such interviews. Moreover,
CRC conducts and organizes job search seminars, job fairs and expositions to help graduating and graduate students in their job
placements.
