Discover Your Interests

Knowing what career you might want to pursue will help you determine what kind of colleges to consider, and what to major in at college.

The best way to start is to assess your interests, abilities, and values.

Think about what you're good at and what you love to do. Then, let that guide your choice of colleges.

Start by answering these questions:

  • What are my interests? What do I like to do?
  • What are my strengths?
  • What are my skills? What am I good at doing?
  • What is important to me?
  • Do I like to lead?
  • Do I like to work alone or as a team with others?
  • How would I like to make a contribution to my community?
