Exploring with Purpose - Career Exploration

Make a List of Occupations to Explore

By taking some assessments and exploring major options at UNCG, you will begin to have a sense of what areas you are passionate about in life. Now it is time to start learning about potential occupations. There are two common ways to approach this:

In addition to the resources above, your career exploration process can be enhanced by conducting informational interviews and job shadowing.

  • Informational interviews are an opportunity for you to interview professionals working in potential fields, positions, and companies of interest to you.
  • Job shadowing is an opportunity for you to follow a professional through their work day.

Both of these are opportunities for you to experience first-hand what it would be like to work in your areas of interest. To learn more about these experiences, visit the Career Services Center in the EUC room #1.
