Career Planning/Picking a Major
Many students come to Eastern as undecided majors or simply do not know what types of careers they can obtain with the major that they have chosen. Career Services provides a variety of tools for students to use when determining the right career field for them.

Due to growing concern over what should and should not be included in a letter of recommendation, we are providing you with helpful resources and guidelines.
