Your Major Doesn't Always Equal Your Career!
A Career Community consists of a group of students who have career interests that fall into a specific occupational category. This model was implemented to provide a more targeted approach to guiding students through the career development process.
What Career Communities are NOT:
- Services for specific majors only
- A focus solely on "professional" academic programs (e.g. Business, Health Science, Hospitality)
What Career Communities ARE:
- Focused on the idea that major doesn't always equal career
- Designed around career areas/fields
- Help students explore their career interests and how to get there
