If you don’t know where to start, or you have an idea, but are not 100% sure, that’s okay. Studies show 80% of college students change their major at least once, and you have an opportunity to find something at which you excel and enjoy. Below are some tools and resources to assist in your career exploration.

Gain Knowledge

  • Visit our Career Assessments page to take the O*NET Interest Profiler assessment, which will provide suggestions for possible careers that might match your interests.
  • The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) or Strong Interest Inventory (SII) are additional assessments to gain knowledge. For further exploration, make an appointment via Handshake to take an assessment.
  • Attend a What Can I Do with This Major? Workshop. See Handshake for more details.
  • Evaluate your career priorities. Define your workplace values using a Value Sort Activity to start seeing patterns in the things you want to be included in your future career.



  • Volunteering – Connecting with an organization in the greater Baltimore region or participating in an annual service event to help generate ideas for potential careers.
  • Tiger L.E.A.P. Tiger L.E.A.P. connects undergraduate students with employers for one-day job shadowing opportunities to explore a potential career field.
  • Career Community Site Visits – Look for opportunities in the other Career Communities to visit some of the region’s top employers to see what job opportunities they offer and if they pique your interest.
  • On-campus / Part-time Jobs – Whether the role is on-campus or off, working will allow you to gain skills and will enable you to explore and build up your network for future job opportunities.
