Being a Jayhawk means you are committed to learning, and open to experiences and ideas that will challenge and strengthen you. Along your career journey, you will discover new things about yourself and the world around you that will help you grow and develop both personally and professionally.
The University Career Center has developed this guide to help you identify your passions and turn them into meaningful career opportunities. Keep in mind that your career journey is a process and does not end once you decide on a major or occupation. Therefore, you may want to revisit this guide periodically to reassess changes in yourself and the world of work.
We have organized this guide into four parts, but it does not have to be completed in any particular order.
