Career Exploration and Research

Another important step in the career development process is learning as much as you can about careers of interest. This will help you rule out some career paths and focus on others.

Did you know that there are over 22,000 occupational titles in the United States? You cannot possibly think about or investigate them all. You may want to start by learning about different job titles in your field of interest, required skills and experience, job outlook in that area, and salary and advancement opportunities. The Career Development Center can provide you with many resources to start your research. You can also talk to people in that field to learn more about what that job is really like through an information interview. Learning as much as you can about careers of interest will help you rule out some career paths so you can focus on others.
