Step 2. Career Exploration

Once you identify possible careers, research each career or occupational area to find ones that best meet your personality and interests.

Gather information about the nature of the work, working conditions, employment outlook, degree requirements and salary. You also may learn more through experiential education opportunities, such as job shadowing or informational interviewing, as well as through Pima's Student Success classes.

  • STU 109A Making Career Choices: Interests and Values.

On your own you may find many resources to explore careers and majors. Use your research to begin to focus on a specific career or occupational area that you want to pursue. If you need more help as you go through the process, drop in or make an appointment with a counselor.
