Career Exploration
When it comes to careers, it's not always as easy as picking a major, graduating college, and then starting a job in that field. First you have to actually pick the major, and then you need to know if there are career prospects that are what you want to do. And it's not as easy as picking this major means you'll get this job. Sometimes things change. Because of that, we want to offer you resources that can not only help you pick a major that is right for you, but also help you find a career that you love.

Informational Interviewing

Even with the vast amount of information on the internet, it is still lacking in many things. For example, personal relationships and connections to the hidden job market. Because of that, informational interviewing is a great tool to utilize when you are wanting to get to know a potential career better, learn more about people who are currently in those careers, as well as build relationships and rapport with them. Because of the nature of informational interviewing, we've provided some steps to take when trying to get one set up, as well as how to conduct yourself and the interview itself.
