To effectively choose a major or
career, you should have a good understanding about who you are and what is important to you. While this may sound like a big task, it
is actually not all that difficult once broken down into small pieces.
The unique personal characteristics
that are most important to consider when choosing a major are: personality,
values, skills, interests, life experiences and needs. Once you identify those characteristics, the next step will be to explore majors and careers, keeping in mind the characteristics that are most important to you.
