The Dean’s Office and the Career and Civic Engagement Center are here to support you as you explore your interests and potential career paths. Here are a few resources to help you reflect and gather additional information. The more students learn about their chosen pursuits, the more they realize there are many factors to consider and that career interests do not always dictate major selection.
Career Self-Assessments to explore your strengths, personality, leadership style, interests, motivators and more.
LinkedIn Alumni Tool: Check out career paths of BMC alums (Use filter “What they studied”).
Career Databases: Vault, Spotlight on Careers, What Can I do With This Major: Get access to extensive career and industry information representing a wide range of interests -- and every major.
Click “secure page” and use the password “traditions.” You will see individual links and login information for each database.
Connect with Alums!
- Attend Alumna-in-Residence sessions to connect with alums who return to campus to share their experiences; check out the schedule in Handshake.
- Apply for an externship to shadow an alum at their job during winter and spring breaks and get a firsthand glimpse into a field of interest; look for application details in Handshake later this fall.
There are many people on campus available to talk with you about your interests including your dean, major adviser, professors and the Career and Civic Engagement Center. To meet with a career counselor in Career Engagement, schedule an appointment in Handshake.
