Career Exploration

EXPLORE & DESIGN YOUR CAREER

What if you are unsure about your career ideas or undecided about your major? What do you really want out of the life that your A&M-Commerce education will prepare for you?  Do you struggle with too many thoughts for your career – or not enough; or wonder how to apply what really fits your skills and interests, is realistic, and will be satisfying and meaningful?

The Career Exploration Series available by appointment from Career Development provides you a great starting point.  It begins with an in depth assessment aligning your skills and interests with potential careers, jobs, industries, and majors.  The assessment also provides projected career trends related to future growth and salary ranges from entry- to advanced-levels nationally and by state.  The series continues with individualized coaching where you will learn and apply:

  • A context for orienting your ideas and viewpoints regarding career vocation and professional life, and for locating vocation within a balanced overall life;
  • Concepts for evaluating several optional professional paths;
  • Practical skills for exploring alternative vocational “prototypes”; and
  • A draft design for the first phase of your life after graduation.

We also offer experiential workshop events scheduled during each semester such as: preparing for and designing a rewarding new career, finding career balance and inspiration, presenting an unforgettable value, and exponentially increasing “who knows you.”

You may register for these events or schedule your Career Exploration Initial Appointment from Handshake (appointments must be either in person or online).  Call 903-468-3223 for answers to any questions.
