Career Exploration

It can be difficult to know where to start when exploring your options for life after UP. The world of work is complex and dynamic and can feel overwhelming. The best way to get started is by deepening your understanding of your strengths, interests, and values. You are more likely to be satisfied in your career decisions when there is congruency between who you are, what is important to you, and the work you do. Remember, your major is only one piece of the puzzle. In fact, most people do not work in careers that are directly related to what they studied in college. The resources below will help aid you in your career and self-exploration.
