Learn How to Use Your Interests to Make the Most of Your College Experience

The role of interest in career development can be a good starting point to explore majors and careers. Being interested in your classes, extracurriculars and future jobs can lead to higher levels of:

  • Satisfaction
  • Commitment
  • Continuous learning and skill development
  • Personal fulfillment

If you are interested in assessing your interests, feel free to take the Focus2 assessment. You can use your results to learn about activities, events, and student orgs that feed into your interests. MyInvolvement is a great next step to learn how to apply your interests on-campus.

Remember, college is as much about coursework and grades as it is about exploring yourself! The office of Career and Professional Development can help throughout your exploratory journey.
