Services Utilized at the Center for Career Development: At freshmen orientation, I signed up for the Exploring Majors and Careers class because I was an undecided major.  My student advisor said that it would assist me in picking a major that would fit my personality.
Success Story: Taking the Exploring Majors and Careers class helped me tremendously with picking a major.  The instructor, Stephanie Kit, was a wonderful resource at helping the class figure out how our personalities would work with different job opportunities.  She worked with us in class and out of class giving us one on one time and taking the time know each of us on a personal level.  This was very beneficial because she was able to give us ideas about what job outlooks we should investigate depending on our individuality.  One thing that has helped me throughout my college years that we completed in this course was building the basis of my resume.  We talked about the importance of one and what things are appropriate and beneficial to add to it.  Throughout my college years, I have been able to build on to my resume and achieve all my accomplishments that I had set forth during this class.  Every goal that I had talked about and set with Mrs. Kit I have achieved thus far.  If it wasn’t for this class, I would not be as prepared and on track of achieving my long term goals as I am now.  I would highly suggest this class to anyone.
