The Office of Career Development seeks to provide all C-N students and alumni with guidance in all of your career development needs. From exploring majors and career opportunities to assistance with resume and cover letter writing and mock interviews to preparation for post-undergraduate education, Career Development is here to help prepare our students and alumni for the opportunities that await them along their professional journeys.
FOCUS 2 is a self-paced, interactive, online career exploration and planning program for current C-N students and C-N alumni. It offers multiple self-assessment and exploration tools which will be very beneficial to your career decision-making process. You will be able to explore the majors at Carson-Newman and find occupations that match. Once the assessment is completed, the student can meet with a Student Success Advisor to discuss the results.
What Can I Do With This Major? is a great website that allows you to explore multiple majors and search for information on your chosen field. This website allows you to learn about career areas and types of employers that hire people with a particular major. In addition, you are able to learn about strategies that will make you more marketable in your major field.
Most majors that are offered at Carson-Newman are listed. However, the majors listed are not Carson-Newman specific. For example, if your major is Leadership and Ethics, it would fall under the Religion section. Or, if your major is Exercise Science, it would fall under the Athletic and Sport section.
When appropriate for your career goals, graduate school is the perfect way to increase your knowledge and make you more valuable in your career search.
