CAREER & MAJOR EXPLORATION
8TH- 12TH GRADES
Students often make their college major decisions based upon limited information, only to discover that they do not match their strengths or long-term goals. This is especially true for students whose parents were educated outside of the U.S. While a vast majority of students discover their career aspirations in college, changing their major at that stage can be difficult and expensive.
Choosing a career path is a challenging process. However, if you invest the time and effort upfront to explore the best options, students will be more focused, confident and motivated to reach their career goals.
To assist students in exploring the intersection of their interests and skills in selecting potential career paths.
