Are your career interests and chosen major a good fit for you?
Children are often asked, “What are you going to be when you grow up?” Most often, the answer to this question changes as we grow. This is especially true when we hit college. College students often find their interests and abilities challenged by the rigor of college-level coursework. Poor grades, lack of motivation or evolving intellectual interests frequently lead students to question, “Is this really what I’m cut out for?”, “Am I any good at this?”, “Isn’t there something out there that I might find more enjoyable given my personality?” The Cal Poly Pomona Career Center has developed a resource that can be tremendously helpful if you are questioning the career or major decisions you have made.
