Because many of the self-assessments above do not tie your results directly to various careers or work environments, you may need a trained professional to help you understand how your results related to careers and majors. Please contact CCSD to arrange an appointment for assistance.

Remember:  Career exploration and development is a very complex process.  You may need assistance exploring any of these pieces and/or integrating all of this information and figuring out how it relates to majors and careers.  Please contact CCSD to schedule an appointment for further assistance.

Also, remember that your values, interests, and abilities are likely to change over time.  As we said, this is a journey, and it may take you places you never imagined!
