Responding to the Career Concerns of the Undecided Student
Being undecided about a major or career is a normal developmental process. Many students change their major one or two times before settling on a career path.
Self-exploration and gathering information about majors and careers are important steps in making a career decision.
Difficulties and delays in making a career decision can lead to stress and poor academic performance.
- Encourage exploration through course selection, work, volunteering, extracurricular activities, and counseling.
- Normalize the developmental process for the student.
- Refer the student to the Counseling Center for career counseling.
- Refer the student to the Career Center for occupational information, internship information, and information about entering the world of work.
