Research Your Career

Not sure what career path you would like to pursue?  Do some research on possible careers before making a decision.  A common mistake made by college students is to pick a major before investigating the employment possibilities upon graduation.  This is especially important if you are restricted to living in a certain geographical area or are seeking a specific salary level.  Your wants and needs in these categories may not match up with your career interest.  It is better to have that information prior to beginning your education than after graduation. 

An excellent source of information is the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.  This agency provides detailed information on all occupations as well as regionally specific data. Click the image below to get started.
