Knowledge of careers, paired with knowledge of self helps you make decisions that will lead to greater happiness. Most people don’t enter college knowing a lot about the various career paths. There are many ways for you to learn more about career options.

Exploring careers can be done in these four progressively more involved ways:

  • Reading and researching careers online and in print
  • Talking to professionals in fields of interest
  • Watching people in their place of work through shadowing
  • Doing: internships, volunteering, jobs, and on-campus activities


  • One of the most important things you can do your first year is explore extracurricular activities and pursue academic interests.
  • Do your best in classes, get to know your professors and classmates and take care of yourself.
  • Extracurricular activities allow you to explore your interests and develop leadership skills. Find clubs and organizations that you might be interested in and attend a meeting.
