Want To Get A Head Start?
There are several things you can do to get a head start on the selection process:
- Assess your interests. What's your passion? What excites you? What kinds of careers intrigue you? Ask your guidance counselor about self-assessment tools that can help you identify career possibilities that match your interests.
- Examine your abilities. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are your best subjects? Do you like facts and figures? Do you enjoy the flexibility of using creativity to solve problems? Do you tend to think outside the box?
- Consider your values. What's important to you? Do you want to help people? Do you enjoy working alone or in groups? What kind of impact do you want to have on society?
- Investigate careers. Interview people working in careers that interest you. Ask your guidance counselor for career resources. Check Web sites for information about different occupations, including SJC's Career Development Center Web site. Get a part-time job or volunteer your time in a field of interest. Complete a career interest inventory during your Freshman Seminar at SJC.
- Gather insight. Confer with the people who know you best, such as your parents, teachers, coaches, clergy, and friends. What kinds of careers do they envision for you? What talents or abilities do they see in you that you may have overlooked?
- Evaluate your options. Review the academic programs offered at colleges that interest you and see what jumps out.
- Give us a call. We'd be happy to help you sort through the options and find the major that best suits you. Contact the Office of Admissions by calling 219-866-6170 or 800-447-8781, or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
