What are Career Communities?

Your major doesn’t always point to a specific career, and that’s OK – there are lots of possibilities opened up to you with your Letters & Science education. Career Communities help you explore your areas of interest and potential career paths you could try.

Each Community has guides and events to help you learn about your options, industry-specific resources to help you land a job or internship, and a Career & Internship Specialist ready to chat and help you figure out your next steps, wherever you are in the process.

We encourage you to explore as many Career Community hub pages as you’d like! Let your interests guide you.
