Career Services offers many helpful tools for planning your career. Below are a few links and tips to get you started. Further information can be viewed from the career planning pyramid or the checklist for each undergraduate year. Benefits of using our office include assessment of your interests and skills, planning for your future, career counseling, and choosing or changing your major.
The following three-step process is fairly simple, but it will take some time and energy to follow-through and plan your future.
Step One: Self-Assessment (take a look at your interests, values, personality and abilities). Check out www.keirsey.com for an on-line assessment. For more in-depth self-awareness activities and "tests" attend one of our scheduled workshops or schedule an individual appointment with Career Services. We can get you on track!
Step Two: Career Exploration (research careers/occupations/majors that meet your interests, values, personality and abilities).
Step Three: Action Plan (state your goals, choose a major)
The career exploration and information gathering step continues. Remember to volunteer, intern, obtain a summer position related to your field of interest. Get involved with a club or organization - build your leadership skills.
