Before selecting an academic major and career path, understanding who you are (Self Assessment) is an important first step. Knowing your skills, interests, values and personality characteristics will help you match up to majors and careers.
Career Counselors meet you wherever you are in this process of discovery, and Career Assessments are supplemental tools they often use to help validate your decisions. Discuss thoughts, feelings and concerns regarding your interests, personal preferences, values and skills as they relate to majors and viable career options. Career Counselors help you determine the "next best step" through a mutual development of your personalized Career Action Plan. The end result is your gaining confidence and information to make wise decisions.
