Career Exploration

Planning is an important step to a successful, satisfying career. In some cases, selection of your major or field of study leads directly to it, such as accounting or nursing. In many other cases, the connection is not as clear, and your path from major to career may be non-linear. In either case, meet with a career advisor to begin the next steps in your career exploration and planning.
