Choose Your Major or Career

Career decision-making is a life-long process that includes exploring the world of work and understanding how your skills, interests, personality, and values connect to it. Career Services staff can help you through this process, offering guidance about how to uncover your career sweet spot.

Your career sweet spot means that you are pursuing careers that use your skills, fit your interests, compliment your personality strengths, and are in line with your values. This isn't an easy balance to achieve, but remember, Career Services can equip you with the skills to evaluate your options as you move through your academic career and as you navigate the changes that occur in your life.

There are many ways to engage in this process:

-LEARNING ABOUT YOU-

  • Schedule an appointment to take some career assessments. These exercises will help you articulate and define your interests, skills, work values, and personality strengths. Learn more about the process here. Call 318-797-5062 to get started. 

  • Participate in workshops. See our Facebook page and the University Calendar for upcoming workshops entitled "Exploring Your Options."

  • Explore MyPlan, a resource for learning about occupations, potential  majors, and yourself!
