Transform Career Confusion into Confident Choices
Exploring majors is common! Approximately 75 to 85 percent of college students change their major at least one time before graduation.
Very few people are lucky enough to figure out a straight-line path from college major to long-term professional career. Major and career exploration is a process, a journey that takes time, information, reflection, and action.
College is one of the best places to navigate this process! C-GCC provides many supports to exploring students which are represented on the diagram on the left side of this page.
The most important is Career Counseling with your academic advisor, who will help you select Intro Courses that align with your personality, values, and interests. Pre-career experiences like job shadows and information interviews provide you with opportunities to “reality-check” a career to see if it matches your expectations!
Just like a roundabout gives you time to figure out the “right exit,” the Exploration Zone gives you time to sample Intro Courses and work with your Academic Advisor to hone in on your degree plan.
