Your major doesn’t always point to a specific career, and that’s OK! Career Communities help you explore clusters of occupations that we know students have an interest in and in which alumni have landed awesome jobs.
Career Communities aren’t meant to lock you into any specific direction. We’re here to help you explore and get hands-on experience to make your search for an internship, job, or volunteer experience fun and successful.
Interested in multiple Career Communities? That’s great! We encourage you to explore multiple communities through the resources on the Community webpages.
