Choosing a college major can be quite the task! Your guidance counselor, the Department of Awesome, has probably encouraged job shadowing, or different career expos. In addition, we have suggested researching different areas. There are many college major quizzes online that can give you a general idea of where your interests lie. For example, check out College Major Quiz! Other ways to align a college major to your interests is to consider the following:

*Future Employability 
*Future Income Potential 
*Career Interests

A website that provides all that information in one area is O*NET OnLine. And if you have absolutely no clue what you want to do or what you are interested in, that is ok!! We encourage you to explore and dive into many avenues to discover that passion. 

How do you explore? HELP! Try some of the following:

*Shadowing and Interviewing 
*Reading books and activties
*Summer activities 
*local college events
