Career Decision Process
Factors Involved in the Career Decision Process:
There are many factors involved in choosing a major and a career. Understanding each of these factors helps in the decision-making process.
- Am I Choosing a Major or a Career?
Not all life plans have a single or specific academic major that leads directly to them.
- Understanding the World of Work
Sometimes just knowing what is out there and available can help.
- Self Assessment
Understanding who we really are is a lifelong process. Having a good picture of who you are presently and where you want to go is a great tool in the decision making process.
- Decision Making
Not everybody has taken time to look at the components of decision making but by doing so you may be able to identify just where it is that you are stuck.
- Understanding Major Requirements
A close examination of the requirements of a degree may help you identify if a major is going to be congruent with your interests.
