Transcript of Career Services, Experiential Education, and the OLCP

Amanda Long, Assistant Director of Experiential Education The Career Services Center There is 1 perfect job for me. True or False? My major is going to lead to my career. I will have only 1 career in my lifetime. Liberal Arts, Humanities and Science majors are usually unemployable after college. If I wait long enough, luck will eventually bring me to the right career. Career assessments will tell me exactly what career is right for me. Most students know their major and career goals when they enter college.
