Seeking Career Options / Majors
  • What do you want to be when you grow up?
  • Whats your major?
  • Students who have career direction before
    entering college are nine times more likely to
    graduate from college
  • Decisions influenced by family, friends teachers,
    counselors, assessments, shadowing, college
    visits, reading, etc
  • When the goal is post-secondary success, not
    college admissions, career direction becomes as
    pivotal as academic skills. Kenneth Gray
