Exploring Interests and Careers

Choosing a career can be both exciting and intimidating. Most students are unsure about what to major in, and it is common for students to change their minds about a major or career.

The Fleishman Center is here to help you when making these important decisions. Our team of Career Consultants can provide you with the tools, resources and guidance needed to choose a career that reflects your own values, strengths and interests.

While some careers, like nursing or engineering, require a specific undergraduate major, many industries and employers welcome students in all majors. What will be more important to your career success is taking the time to choose a major that matches your interests and in which you can do well, while engaging in meaningful extra-curricular activities—including clubs, volunteering, research and internships—outside the classroom.

Explore Your Interests and Make Meaningful Connections

The Fleishman Center has developed a number of award-winning programs designed to introduce you to a variety of fields that may interest you. In addition to participating in our programs, self assessment tools are an excellent place to start when making career choices such as choosing a major, exploring occupations and determining a career plan. These tools can help you identify work interests, personal Interests, strengths and values and relate them to the world of work. Self-reflection and understanding are a great starting point to help identify possible career paths and environments that allow you to be your best.
