Next Steps

Ask yourself these questions to determine the next step:

  • What are my top three work values?
  • Knowing my top three work values, to what extent are they satisfied by majors or careers I am considering?
  • Of careers I am considering, what is the employment outlook?
  • Will I like to work in this type of environment 40+ hours a week, doing these types of activities?
  • What will my professional life be like? Will my work life compliment and support the personal life I want?
  • Knowing the required courses of majors I am considering, how many sound interesting?  Does this seem like what I want to focus my coursework in?
  • Am I willing to go through the steps to succeed in this field (e.g. attend graduate school, pass a certification exam, etc.)?
  • Does this career path fit with my personality, values, interests, and skills?

Now What?

Take your reflections and determine your next move.

  • If you have confirmed choices, you are ready to set some goals and move forward with your decisions.
  • If you still have unanswered questions, identify the concerns related to the questions and determine what matters to you in terms of majors and careers.
