Our Mission and Philosophy

The consultants at Access College and Career Consultants believe that each client brings a unique combination of personality, talents, experiences and skills that should be nurtured by personalized attention.  Strategic, focused planning creates the foundation for life-long achievement.

College Bound

Our experts guide high school students in the quest for admission to universities where they can blossom academically and thrive socially.  In addition to post secondary education counseling, we offer planning for gap year and summer experiences that explore the student’s interests and build a strong resume.  (Learn More)

Career Wise

To our clients in job transition we bring a concentrated and tactical approach, whether they are looking for their first job, changing positions or re-entering the work force.  Career Wise clients receive coaching in job search, networking, resume writing, and interviewing skills.  We also offer assessment of career interests and career-life style connections using The Birmkan Method, MBTI and informal surveys.
