• At The Core was founded to serve students as they prepare to
    make the very important decisions that surround their
    transition from high school to their future.



Most students have NO clue (or a vague or somewhat misguided clue) of what careers exist and which may be a good fit for them

Guided Self Assessment


At The Core’s Private Consultation service fills that need. The meeting’s content is driven by YOU…what do you need to talk about?

“This process was very beneficial and definitely has directed me into my areas of interest and has left me more confident with the process of figuring out the correct career for me.”

“By taking simple questions and going so in depth, At The Core was able to recognize things I had never thought of before.”
