Ready to Choose a Major or Find a Career that's Right for You?

So people tell you to choose something you are passionate about, and you'll be satisfied in your career your whole life. If you know now what interests you, go for it! Talk to your adviser, another faculty member or a Career Center staff member to start planning for your dream career.

If you're like many liberal arts students, however, you're interested in many things, have several ideas or may not even be sure what interests you in the future. In fact, most adults have seven careers in their lives. Not because they are confused but because their interests keep evolving during their adult lives, opportunities occur, and work changes so job options change too.

The key?

Learn about yourself - your interests, skills, values, personality.

Then explore majors and careers to identify some options.
