Career Decision Making
Career Decision Making is the “What do you want to be when you grow up?” branch of Career Services. Our counselors are available to meet with students one-on-one to guide them through the process. It’s personal because, well, deciding how to spend 40-ish hours a week of your life for the span of your career is pretty personal. They also administer and interpret career assessments and host workshops centered on career decisions.
Choosing a Major/ Career
Many individuals find the process of selecting a major or career stressful and overwhelming. With thousands of occupations from which to choose, how do you select just one?
Information is the key.
The first step to finding a satisfying major and/or career is to learn as much as you can about your skills, interests, values, and personality preferences. After completing a thorough self-evaluation, you will need to determine which occupations can best utilize your identified strengths. To complete this second step, you must gather adequate occupational information. Armed with sufficient information about the requirements of various careers, you will be able to determine which ones have the potential to make optimal use of your assets. You are now in a much better position to make an initial major/career selection.
