• Career

Discover the possibilities.

Are you undeclared / undecided / still exploring your major or minor?  Unsure of who you want to be when you grow up or what you want to do for a living?  Interested in multiple, divergent, possible career paths or industries? This interest group invites and supports your exploration, research, self-reflection, and discovery.

Explore & reflect to create the career of your dreams.

This interest group provides resources and opportunities for students, and alums, to explore their interests, values, skills, strengths, and passions.  And then take those insights to consider potential fields and jobs based on what you love, what you do well, what the world will pay you for and what the world needs. 

Major & Minor Choice / Changes

Majors do not necessarily dictate career paths, but figuring out the right program of study is nevertheless an important part of your career journey.
