Reflect on Your Values, Goals, and Strengths

The Discover Yourself module will encourage you to reflect on your interests, values, goals, and strengths to lead you toward a successful and fulfilling career. This module is designed for anyone preparing for a job search or making a change. By using the tools and information we've provided on this website; along with the help of family, school, counselors, and other support networks; you'll be able to turn your job search into an adventure!

The first step is determining what kind of job you want. You may already have given this considerable thought when you chose your field of study, or you may want to further discover your interests, values, and abilities. Either way, we recommend taking time for self-exploration, as it is instrumental in finding a job in which you have the greatest potential for success.
