Getting Started

"You've got to find what you love. . . Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do."

Stanford University Commencement Address, delivered by

Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple Computer

NPR's TED Radio Hour provides some insight about our what makes us successful (March 21, 2014).

Keep in Mind

Like any journey you may go on, it is useful have a road map. College is a time of discovery and exploration. It is helpful to find a field of study and to create a map that will help guide you to a fulfilling career and life. 

According to CareerFocus:

  • 25% of college freshmen are undecided about their major,
  • over 75% of college students will change their major at least once while in college. 

Choosing a career first, and then finding a major that will prepare you for that career will make your college experience more productive and worthwhile.

Self Exploration

The first step in exploring a career is to do some personal evaluation of yourself.

  • Who are you?
  • What is your personality type?
  • What are your values?
  • What are your interests?
  • This will help you choose a career to research for this project.

Below are some assessment tools to help you along this process.
