Major and Career Exploration
We have a number of resources and tools available to assist students in exploring options. We offer no pressure conversations and professional guidance to help students make informed decisions about their major and/or careers. Below are some of the resources we have available. To set up an exploration meeting, please fill out this brief intake form.
- TypeFocus is an online personality type and career assessment resource designed to help students understand their natural personality traits, interests, values and skills, and use that information to discover occupations best suited for them…and that is just the beginning! Campbell University students may complete the TypeFocus assessment at no cost. To schedule a TypeFocus assessment and advisement session, please fill out the form above.
- Occupational Outlook Handbook, produced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, is a website that allows students to dive deeper into careers and occupations that are of interest to them. Students can learn more about: the day to day activities within an occupation; the education, training and certifications that are required or suggested for a position in this field; general pay and job outlook information; and more. If you would like to review this information with our staff feel free to complete the form linked above.
- What Can I Do With This Major? is a comprehensive resource designed to help students connect majors to careers. Learn about typical career areas and types of employers that hire people with each major, as well as strategies to make you a more marketable candidate. Also included are links to related websites to further research majors and career fields.
Each semester we highlight a few academic departments in our Dabble in A Discipline series. Check the University Calendar for our upcoming events.
Personal Mission Statement
The Office Academic Advising created a Personal Mission Statement resource utilized in academic advising sessions. It offers students the opportunity to ask what it is they care about and how they will impact the world through it.
