Career Services!

The representative that spoke with us from career services was very informal and gave me a lot of ideas I never thought about.She is there to help us choose a major and decipher through all of our interest and try to incorporate those to come up with a final decision. She spoke to us about our likes and dislikes as far as majors go. However, that isn't the only step to choosing a major. Next, we needed to think about what our strengths and weaknesses are- those characteristics play a huge role in how we perform our job and our attitude towards our job. With the interest inventory, the results gave me new major ideas and made me want to reconsider my decision to be an athletic trainer. Something that I didn't really like was that, I felt like I had my major in stone and was decided and these meetings kind of made me take a step back. After hearing from the representative for two days, I decided to make an appointment to speak with her personally. I go to today at 2:00 and I am confident that she will lead me the right direction and help me out!

  1. It appears the Career Services Day was helpful to you, and I am glad about that! Choosing a major can be difficult, but it is a necessary evil. Make sure to take your time and the help of Career Services and others so that you choose a major that truly suits you and your interests. Do your research; find what it is that you truly love to do and have a passion for and tailor your major to fit that. Sometimes students may not choose their major until after they've been in college for a while and that is okay. I think it was a smart decision to make a personal meeting with the CS representative. How did you meeting go? I am interested to find out what came of it. Let me know...
