Are you unsure what major or career to pursue?
Understanding your values, interests, personality, skills, and strengths is the first step toward choosing an eventual career path. Developing your self-awareness can be as formal as taking an interest assessment, or as informal as participation in co-curricular activities.
Matching careers to what you have identified as important before beginning your career research helps you stay focused and motivated. Exploring these questions through assessment tools will help you discover more about yourself and guide you to academic majors and careers most appropriate for you.
