Exploratory

Your career starts here.

Whether you’re unsure of your major, trying to figure out what you can do with your degree, or discovering the path you thought you were on may no longer be the right one for you—you have come to the right place!

Career exploration is about getting curious, talking to people and trying things out to discover the possibilities! This process is ongoing, so whether you’re a first-year student just getting started, a sophomore trying to decide on a major, a junior or senior considering post-grad options, or an alumnus/a looking to change careers, your career development never really ends—so embrace the journey!

Below are resources, events, and alumni profiles designed to help you explore and create your own vision for your future career. Check out some or all of these, and you’re welcome to schedule an appointment with a career advisor to help you get started, discuss your thoughts further, and create an action plan.
