Career Communities

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
