All the words can sound pretty intimidating: whether you call it a "job," "career," "work," "employment" or "occupation," if you need help deciding the direction to go in your future, the Career Center can really help you. Here are a few things we offer to help you explore the possibilities:

Career Guidance Take advantage of inventories and individual appointments; see how the results relate both to your future career and to your major.
City Semester Programs Take part in off-campus, semester-long internship programs that allow you to intern in a cool city, earn a full-semester's credits, get great experience, and keep your financial aid.
Career Alumni Panels Learn how to "get there from here" from alumni professionals in several career fields.
Informational Interviewing Ask alumni questions about their fields; seek their advice about jobs.
Job Shadowing Spend a day with an alumnus on the job to learn about his or her field.
