Exploring Careers & Job Shadowing

 Career Exploration Resources

Career exploration is as important as the major exploration process. Some students have a career in mind that guides that choice of major, while other students know what they want to major in and then begin searching for a career. 

Below are resources to help you begin the career exploration process. 

Job Shadowing Resources

Job Shadowing is a great way to connect your classroom experience to career paths, industries, and companies. As you decide on a major and are exploring career opportunities, job shadowing allows you to gain first-hand knowledge on different careers, as well as begin to learn about the type of workplace and tasks you may want in a future career.
