Exploring Majors & Careers

Undecided on which major to choose? You’re not alone. It can be difficult decision.  There are many different career self-assessments out on the internet. We have provided you with access to a few. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for additional information. These below do require you to create a free profile, and go through their site to take different assessments. There is also a link on the right that will take you to a paper RIASEC assessment. Those can be done in person with Meagan Newman or on your own.

 

Under the My Profile link there is a link to three inventories: Interest, Abilities, and Values. Once those three inventories have been taken, then a career map is created for you to look at areas where interests overlapped. If you don’t understand, or want assistance in exploring this profile, please go ahead and take the inventories, and then set up an appointment with Meagan Newman in the Academic Advising Office. She can be reached by calling 580-745-2058 or emailing mnewman@se.edu.
