Adults considering a career change can receive free help courtesy of the "Project Choice" program at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Offered by the Counseling and Career Services Office at Penn College, Project Choice provides comprehensive career exploration for anyone wishing to forge a new career path.

The program is part of the state Department of Labor and Industry's "Rapid Response" initiative, an early intervention service assisting workers and employers affected by layoffs, plant closures or natural disasters.

Project Choice provides an assessment of skills, abilities and personality style; structured career exploration and career-goal planning; workshops on goal-setting, prioritizing, decision-making, stress management, self-esteem and removing roadblocks; and information on training, education, financial aid and support service.

The September session will run from Monday, Sept. 9, through Thursday, Sept. 19. Daily times are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (there are no sessions on Fridays).
