Career Services


We invite NMSU Grants students and alumni to make use of the Career Services offered by the Student Services staff, including the NMSU Grants Testing Center.

NMSU Grants Testing Center

NMSU Grants Testing Center now has the capability of offering the National Career Readiness Certification via ACT WorkKeys. Students successfully completing the assessments can earn ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), a credential respected throughout the United States. This assessment system measures real-world job skills and will help evaluate foundational and soft skills that are so important in the job market.

This Career Readiness Certificate program is free to NMSU-Grants students and accessible at the NMSU Testing Center from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM  Monday-Friday.  Click here for more information on the WorkKeys assessments and further explanation on the benefits of the National Career Readiness Certificate.

Other Career Counseling Services

Student Services also offer consultation when it comes to job search strategies, resume review, and creating or joining networks that may assist you with future employment opportunities. We have access to career exploration inventories that we can help you interpret that may reveal a previously unconsidered career option. Contact Beth Armstead at 505-287-6628 or Lisa Whitmore at 505- 287-6629.
