Career Cues

1. Why are you here?
2. What do you want to be when you grow up?
3. What are you going to do with your degree?

These are all questions you need answers to, and we help you discover those answers for yourself. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Determining your "CAREER" is a lengthy process, one that may or may not ever identify itself. What is most important are these 3 fundamental factors, when in your career:

  1. Does your work make you happy?
  2. Are you productive/knowledgeable in your job?
  3. Does your work fulfill your life's purpose?

CAREER "TEST" CUES:

Keep these facts in mind when taking career tests, in-person, online, etc...

  1. This test is for YOU and you alone. Be selfish with your perspectives and thoughts when completing.
  2. Do not predict the outcome. Doing so will bias the process, yielding inaccurate results.
  3. This is not a test. Results are not FINAL, they are meant only as a guide, or perspective.
  4. The more the merrier. Take more than 1 test and compare notes. We recommend at least 3.
There are many additional resources available to help you as well.
