In this class, you'll take a variety of assessments and inventories to learn about your interests, values, personality, and skills. Discover how they can relate to your choice of a college major and career, and learn about what options are available to you.
You are encouraged to set up an appointment with a counselor for career planning and decision making assistance. Counselors can meet with you individually, and recommend specific career assessments to meet your needs. They can also lead you through the career exploration process, review your resume, and help practice interviewing.
Counselors can also help you explore what you can do with different majors and programs - the key is to find a major that fits your interests.
