Keys for Career Exploration

Recorded Monday, September 14, 2015

50-60% of college students will change their major. 40% of college graduates get to graduation day wishing they were earning a different degree. 65-85% of Americans dislike their job. Clearly, career dissatisfaction is a common issue. But there is an answer!
Cedarville University’s director of career services and a certified professional career coach, Jeff Reep, will discuss how students can engage in career exploration early and often. Without it, college freshmen choose majors based on vague ideas of future lifestyle, but no true knowledge of their options or of the ways God has equipped them to serve His purposes. A college education is a significant investment and selecting a major is a significant choice.
