What you don’t need to know first
I was talking with a very bright sophomore this morning about choosing a major. With a next- semester-choosing-a-major-deadline looming, he was still not sure about what to go. When I suggested he come in to talk it over, his reply was that he couldn’t do that because he couldn’t come in with any ideas.
Actually, Not/Nada/Nope. You don’t need to come in with ideas. That’s where we, the career counselors, come in. We’re here to listen and talk things over, to look for and discover together your strengths. So, all you who are waiting until things clear up, wait no more. Just show up. We’ll do the figuring out part together.
