Doing some self exploration, interacting with alumni and recruiters and getting hands-on experience will assist you in exploring the endless variety of industries, career tracks, and job opportunities within your chosen major. Discover what you enjoy doing and the skills and talents you possess. Match these skills and talents with career possibilities. Pick a variety of career fields you would be interested in and investigate them. Research companies and career paths.
