Prepare to embark on your journey in a supportive atmosphere, exploring your own unique personality, interests, values, and skills.

The CSE has staff to help every Southeastern student in need of career/major exploration.

Freshman students with an SE 101 instructor can make an appointment with their freshman advisor to explore resources and options.

Students in transition, who are no longer served by the CSE Freshmen Advisors, can make an appointment with an Academic and Career Exploration (ACE) coach.

An Effective Career Planning Process Involves:

Assessment 

Understanding where you are in the exploration process includes assessing what you know, what you need to know, and determining the steps that will help you answer those questions. 


Exploration

Meeting with your SE 101 instructor or an ACE coach and exploring the online Occupational Outlook Handbook or O*NET's occupational information are ways to start the exploration process. You can also explore our "What can I do with My Southeastern degree" page.


Making Decisions

Learn how you currently make decisions and how to use other effective methods of decision-making. ACE coaches can help you clarify the decision(s) to be made, assess the need for additional information, identify alternatives, and help you weigh the costs and benefits of each.


Developing an Action Plan 

Meet with your ACE coach and use your Reflection Activities and Summary Sheet to create a plan for declaring your new major.
