What Can I Do with This Major?
Learn about typical career areas and types of employers that hire people with various college majors, and find strategies to make you a more marketable candidate.What I like about these sites is that they help answer questions such as "I really love art history (or sociology, music, psychology, etc.) but what kind of job can I possibly find with that major?"

Take a Career Assessment
Many people find that career assessments can be helpful. It takes some of the pressure off to have solid data to help people make big decisions, such as what to study in college or what career to pursue.Then, afterwards, students and/or families are welcome to meet to discuss their results with Mrs. Rutsky to help interpret the results and explore possibilities that they suggest.
ASFA offers several different career assessments to help individuals with choosing a college major and well as exploring career options. You can take any of them online at your convenience once you have a login code.
