Career Assessments


Take a free career assessment to learn more about yourself and careers that match your personality, interests, values, and skills. Answer some questions to confirm or identify new things about yourself that match up with majors and careers. It’s often most helpful to take one or several of these assessments and then schedule an appointment with our staff to discuss your results.

What Can I Do with This Major?

Learn about what you can do with your major or a major you’re interested in by using
What Can I Do with This Major? This online tool is an easy, free way to see what careers you can have with your
major of interest. Many majors have multiple career options with a variety of fields
you could work in, depending on your interests. Please note that this tool does not
have “General Studies” listed. Instead, you’ll click on the major(s) that are most
similar to your concentration(s).


Learn about Careers

There may be careers you’re familiar with since you know family or friends who work
in those jobs. Other jobs may be new to you, especially if you took a career assessment.
It’s helpful to learn more about unfamiliar jobs using reliable sources to see what
salary you can make, job outlook, tasks you complete in the job, and more. O*Net Online and Occupational Outlook Handbook are two good ways to find out more about careers of interest. For both of these websites,
use the search bar in the top right corner and type in a job you want to learn more


Career Readiness

Become career ready by developing skills employers want to see! There are 5 core skills employers look for in potential interns or full-time hires, regardless of field, industry, job, or major. It’s helpful to understand the skills
that are important to employers, so you can work to develop them throughout your time
at Southeastern. You can develop these skills through classes, part-time jobs, volunteering,
involvement on campus, and more.
