Career Consultants in the UA Career Center are dedicated to helping students explore majors to best fit their interests and career goals. Meeting with a consultant is the best way for a student to obtain tailored assistance and determine whether he or she is a good candidate for an in-depth career inventory. Utilizing our self-directed online inventories is an option for students away from campus or for those who would like to engage in self-assessment prior to meeting with a consultant. The online career exploration resources we recommend are CareerBeam and Choices Planner. More information on each can be found HERE.
Now the question becomes what can you do?
