Career Services has many resources to help you decide on a major and explore career options.
Each of these offerings can be done in a brief amount of time (2-30 minutes) and taking more than one can help you identify core themes to explore further. As always, we encourage students to take these and schedule an appointment with Career Services to review in detail with a Career Consultant for mapping your next strategies in a career plan.
The first step in deciding on a major is learning about who you are and what is important to you. Assessments are effective and reliable tools to help you understand your values, your work preferences and your skills. Assessments typically take 2-30 minutes. Meet with your Career Advisor to review your results and determine next steps. The DISC and VALUES assessments should be taken together. Make sure that you take all assessments in Focus2 to build a composite in this platform.
