FAQs about Career Decision-Making

What do I do if I dont know what I want to major in?

The Career Development Center has many resources to help you determine your major. You should meet with a professional staff member to start the process.

Will a member of the CDCs staff be able to tell me what career I should pursue?

Many factors and feelings go into making a career choice. Professionals can assist you in exploring values, skills, and interests. CDC professionals also teach the process of exploring, learning, and deciding about the world of work. However, it is important to remember that while professionals can assist in the career decision-making process, they will not be able to predict your future and decide for you.

Is it true that the major I choose will determine what career opportunities are available to me?

Your academic major represents one area by which you are developing skills and competencies, but it is not the only way you develop skills and competencies. You are encouraged to seek out additional ways to develop varied skills and abilities through extra curricular activities, internships, community service opportunities, and study abroad experiences. All of these experiences will contribute to your total background and experiences regarding employment opportunities.
