Information For Pre-Major and Major Advisers

Along with the resources available through the pre-major adviser handbook site, the Career and Internship Center has several resources that might be of interest to your students.

Exploring Careers and Majors
Covers various services offered at the Career and Internship Center focused on helping students identify “what do I want to do?”, “what should I major in?”, and “what can I do with that major?” questions.

What can I do with this Major?
The Career Center has purchased access to this resource for students, covering most majors and/or career fields. Each major page breaks information into various industries, employer types, and strategies for success.

Career Counseling and VIPS Search Program
Goal setting begins with self-assessment, and includes the definition of Values, Interests, Personality, and Skills (VIPS). Our VIPS program blends one-on-one appointments with a professional career counselor to define these areas, and may also include taking “Those Career Tests,” or interest and personality inventories. This process can be helpful prior to or after declaring a major. Students will meet with a Career and Internship Center staff member several times, and may take online inventories for interpretation in these appointments.

Career and Internship Center Seminar Series
Offered every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the academic semester, career and internship center counselors cover a variety of topics for students from freshman through graduate students, in all academic majors. A full list of seminars and times is available online. Faculty and staff can also request specific programming for specific student populations here.
