Discovery & Exploration Career Community

Welcome to the Discovery & Exploration Career Community

“Discovery & Exploration Career Community” is a community developed for individuals who need to further explore themselves and various career pathways before making decisions.

Many students are undecided about their future career paths. Making these decisions requires an understanding of career interests and the exploration of various career paths. The information-gathering process can include browsing departmental websites for majors being considered, meeting with advisors from academic departments in areas of interest, talking with professors, speaking with a Career Exploration and Success career advisor, and interviewing people who work in fields being considered.
