Career and Major Decisions
Throughout your career journey, you will be faced with many decisions.
As you learn about yourself, you will be making decisions about what you want to major in, whether you would like a particular field of study, whether you would be good at a certain job.
As you learn about the world of work, you will be making decisions about whether some of the careers you’re considering would be a good fit for you.
As you gain experience, you will be making decisions about whether your experiences are those you want to continue or perhaps alter in the future.
Even after you’ve identified a career to pursue, you will be forever making decisions as your career development journey continues. For example, you might be faced with new opportunities, changing values and priorities, changes in workforce trends, etc.
To help with all these decisions, we recommend you try the following model/tips/exercises.
