Deciding on a Major
Choosing a major can be overwhelming! You choose a major because everyone tells you “oh, yeah! You’ll definitely be able to get a job in that field!”
Seems logical, right? Not if you dread every class in this major! How are you going to be happy with a career in this field?
We have tools to help you make informed decisions so you are not entering a major blindly. And rest assured, there are NO wrong decisions! But there may be BETTER decisions. Also know, a major doesn't define you. Just because you major in psychology does not mean you can't work in the business world. Explore our resources, and see where God takes you.
Career Direct Assessment
Career Direct® is one of the few assessment tools that approaches the field of career guidance from a biblical perspective.
Most career assessments examine just one or two areas. Career Direct® examines four essential components of career selection: personality, interests, skills, and values. As a result, Career Direct is one of the most comprehensive guidance systems on the market today.
This free assessment can help you discover the major / career that is best for you. The 1 hour assessment is taken in our office on a computer. Our career counselor will then walk you through the results, which will help you choose a major OR affirm the career path you have chosen. The career options and counsel alone are worth the price of admission! Did we say it was free?
Contact our career counselor to set up your assessment appointment.
