Career Exploration Services at the Counseling Center

Here are some of the career exploration services available through the Counseling Center:

Majors Walk-In
 is held weekly on Wednesdays, 1:00-3:00 pm. No appointment is necessary.  Majors Walk-In is a great way for you to get started with your career questions and concerns. The computerized career exploration system, SIGI3, will help you with choosing majors and career path options that are suited to your interests, values, personality and goals.  SIGI 3 gives you access to information about hundreds of occupations, and the majors most commonly associated with those occupations, using the most up-to-date career information available.  Plan to spend at least 30 minutes becoming familiar and working with SIGI3. Afterward, you can continue work on your own computers through a secured access portal, which allows you to store information and come back to SIGI3 throughout their at Maryland. This service is mostly used by undergrads (freshmen through seniors), but can even be helpful to graduate students who are unsure of career direction. To take advantage of this opportunity, check in at the Main Reception desk on the 1st floor of the Shoemaker Bldg.
Career Exploration Group, Tuesdays, 1:00-2:30pm, is designed for undergraduate students who want to connect with others, explore their decision-making process, and utilize their strengths in the career exploration process. Career assessments will be taken as part of the group. In the group, you will will learn more about how to integrate your interests, values, and preferences into the process of choosing a major and/or a career and to identify and overcome barriers in this decision-making process. For more information or to express interest, contact Dr. Karen Egan at or call the Counseling Center at 301-314-7651.
Individual Career Counseling, of course, is always available and encouraged for any student with career concerns and/or decisions to make. After signing up for an intake session, you will be assigned to a counselor who will work with you for up to eight (8) appointments in an individualized and personalized way. Interested students should call the Counseling Center as soon as possible to schedule an intake and get started: 301-314-7651.
