Still Deciding

Welcome to the Still Deciding interest community!

Unsure what you are interested in for jobs or careers?  Wondering what your future (after UW!) is going to look like?  Confused because you have lots of interests and not sure how/if to include them in career plans?  Curious how your major fits (or not) with career possibilities?  Or maybe the interest communities we feature on our website don’t fit what you are interested in?

Then this is the community for you!

We recognize that many students are “figuring it out” and that takes time.  Career development is a process (including figuring out “who you are” as a person) and typically unfolds over time, by exploring and by being proactive (career activity) and sometimes even with a little luck or happenstance.

Known strategies for finding “success” in your career include capitalizing on your strengths, understanding what’s important to you (values), connecting with people who can help (networking!) and gathering information (ex: watching career videos and using resources, attending career events, reading articles, talking with people) to help with making decisions.

No matter what, you don’t have to embark on any of this alone.  Through exploring this webpage (and our other interest communities), keeping an open mind about your capabilities and future, by talking with friends, family, career coaches and mentors, you’ll find yourself supported and able to take steps towards short and long term goals.

Best wishes for your career journey!
