Exploring Career Choices

Helping Students Uncover Their Passions

A career is not a s​tatic one time deci​​sion or event. It is a continuous process which can be reflected in the model we call "Career Infinity". As you progress on the journey of your life, you keep cycling through three stages.

Who Am I?

Getting to know and use your strengths is a lifelong activity. You will continue to learn, grow and become more skilled as you progress.

Explore My Options

It's important to recognize and evaluate opportunities that will help you move toward the career you want.


Set My Direction

Reflect on what you have learned then you can respond to the next event in your journey, as well as look ahead to be sure you are moving in your preferred direction.
