Career Assessments

Career assessments can help by clarifying one’s identity and career goals, connecting their interests, values, and skills to potential majors and careers, as well as expanding, narrowing, or confirming their options.

We recommend completing a variety of assessments, conducting thorough career research, and consulting with a career advisor to discuss results and plan your next steps.

Informational Interviewing

Informational interviews are conversations that you initiate with a person working in a career or company in which you are interested.

The benefits of an informational interview include gaining firsthand insights into the daily aspects of a career, industry, or organization, discovering new career paths, acquiring insider knowledge for preparing and securing your first position, and expanding your professional network through meaningful connections.
