Career Advising

Undecided About Your Major and/or Future Career

If so, one of the first steps in the career decision making process is to learn more about yourself.  Exploring the options listed under “Self-Assessment” can help you to learn about career options that could be consistent with your interests, personality, skills, and values.


Review programs of study at NRCC, ODU, RU, and VT by exploring the “Degrees/Majors” links.

What Can I Do With This Major

Connect your major with an applicable career by locating information on related careers, career paths, and job titles.  Review the options under “Linking Degrees/Majors with Careers.”

Career Information

Access the “Career Information” links to research information on careers such as typical work duties and environments, educational requirements, salaries, and outlook for the future.

Finding Employment

The culmination of the career decision making/development process is finding a job.  Access basic information about the job search including; “Job Search/Employment,” preparing “Resumes” and “Cover Letters,”“Networking,”“Interviewing,” and “Working a Job Fair.”
