Explore Majors and Careers

Schedule an appointment with a Career Counselor to discuss major options or take a career assessment. Career assessments assist individuals with identifying how their personality, skills, values and interests may best match specific majors or career paths. UWRF Career Counselors are available by appointment to administer the Career Liftoff which identifies your strongest interests and relates those to a wide array of potential careers. Upon completing the assessment, Career Counselors will assist with interpreting and relating the results of your assessment to potential career or major options.

 

If you don’t know where to start with researching careers, or can’t yet identify 2-3 primary majors of interest, we recommend making an appointment with one of our Career Counselors to take the Career Liftoff career assessment and go over your results. This will help you begin to narrow down your options.

If you are deciding between 2-3 majors, we recommend meeting with Jessica Wekkin, the Coordinator of Academic Engagement and Exploratory Advisor, to create a major and career exploration plan.
