Career Exploration is offered to all current NDSU students, as well as recent Alumni. Exploration is different for everyone. Whether you don’t know what major to choose, what types of careers align with your major or interests, or just want some reassurance that you are on the right track, the Career and Advising Center has various options for you:
- What Can I Do With This Major?– Whether you like your major and want to consider possible career paths that might align or you are considering pursuing a completely new major, this resource can help you see all new potential.
- O*NET OnLine– This resource can help you learn more about specific jobs and see what a “day to day” in the profession might be like. We like to say this is the next best thing to doing a job shadow alongside various professionals.
- Interest Inventories– We can refer to interest inventories when you may not be sure how your current interests could align with majors and careers. See iStartStrong and Strong Interest Inventory information to see if they would fit your current situation.
- Personality Type Indicator– The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator can help identify how your personality type might fit into various work environments and guide you by indicating what roles others with your same personality type typically fit into and find enjoyment in.
