Choosing a Major or Career Path

The first step in the Career Roadmap is to Know Yourself. Whether you are a first year student interested in learning how majors relate to careers, a senior contemplating graduate school or an alumnus considering a career change, it is crucial that you first identify your INTERESTS, VALUES, SKILLS and PERSONALITY PREFERENCES in order to make a well–informed decision.

You can also attend relevant workshops such as Connect Your Values to Career Satisfaction, Identify Your Skills and Accomplishments, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and DePaul Interest Finder (DIF).

What Can I Do with This Major or Degree?

Learn how to apply your major to specific career areas, what types of employers are hiring for different majors, and strategies for breaking into particular fields. Remember, your major does not always determine your career. Professionals use their education in a variety of fields. Be sure to explore a variety of resources as you research possible career paths.
