Career Exploration

Information and experience are critical to making a sound decision.  You acquired these through your classes, your association with new ideas and different people and more particularly through primary and secondary information sources.  Primary information sources are people who are actually in professions who share with you their experience with that profession.  Secondary information comes through things you read or through people you talk to who tell you about a career or a major.  The following information will help you better understand the process of information and experience gathering and to make contact with primary and secondary information sources.
