Career Planning Information and Guidance—mapping out your future direction

Students often find that declaring a major or deciding on a career field is quite difficult. There are so many interesting choices in the world of work today that it is difficult to choose just one. The Career Services Office offers the opportunity to do some career exploration and planning using standard tools of the trade (inventories) and one-on-one career planning counseling. Inventories assist the student in determining strengths, weaknesses, values, and most all, interests. Once interest, values, and skills are identified, the field of study can be explored that would best fit the student’s profile.
Some of those fields of study can be explored by using:

“What Can I Do With This Major/Degree?”

Students wishing to determine their interests and strengths and/or validate their choices are welcome to make an appointment with the Career Services Office for evaluation and counseling.
