Career Exploration

Discover where you are in the career planning process by brainstorming your goals, strengths, and skills. If you have some ideas about the direction you would like to take in terms of a career, learn about the different areas where you could improve in order to become the best possible job candidate.

Major Exploration

Learning more about your personality, skills, and values is one of the first steps in deciding what major is the right fit for you. Take any of the 5 self-assessments to gain more insight into who you are and what environments you would thrive in. Once completed, you have the option of combining any of the results from these assessments to see which major (or career) might be a good fit.

Comparing two occupations

If you are trying to decide between multiple occupations, this tool allows you to compare education requirements, duties, skills, values, salary ranges, and outlook for the future. You can even see how your interest scores (which are determined through completing one of the personality assessments) compare to the typical interests of someone who is already working in this occupation.

What can I do with a major in...?

Whether you are undecided or have already chosen a major, this resource allows you to see which occupations may be an option.   Select your major of choice and explore the possibilities.
