Sometimes it can also be fun to do some independent exploring. Apply your critical thinking, research, and puzzle solving talents as dig into the online resources listed below. These can offer some great jumping off places to inform conversations that you have with LAS Career Services Staff, advisors, faculty, and professionals.

We encourage you to explore options early and often. Starting your explorations well before graduation gives you time to “try out” potential directions thru experiential learning activities such as volunteering, jobs, RSOs, community service, courses, and self-directed projects.
