Welcome to the Reflect, Discover & Explore Multiple Interests Community!

Career development is a lifelong process. As your interests, skills, and experiences grow, your career plans and goals will shift to align with this new information. Don’t feel pressured to “have it all figured out” right away; instead, think of career development as a research project — one that takes patience and time to produce strong results.

You’ll find self-assessment information, career competency resources, advice for evaluating options, and connections to people who are ready to support and encourage you.
