Fall 2017 Career Exploration Workshops (CEWs)

Jasmine Jackson – August 23rd, 2017

How do I choose a major? How do I know that a major is right for me? How do I figure out what my interests and skills are?  How should I begin exploring career possibilities?

If you've ever caught yourself wondering these things, or are curious about these questions, then you might consider joining a Career Exploration Workshop. Career Exploration Workshops (or CEWs) are small 10 - 12 student workshops that meet once a week for four weeks. In a CEW, you will:

  • Explore majors, activities, and extracurriculars at UVa and clarify connections between your personal interests, academic interests, extracurricular interests, and potential careers.
  • Work with a group of peers to learn ways to make balanced career decisions while taking into account your unique interests, values, and skills.
  • Learn the various resources offered by the Career Center and create personalized action plan to further explore possibilities and make career connections.

This fall, you have 3 opportunities to participate in a CEW:

*Note that additional workshops for 1st and 2nd year Echols Scholars and transfer students will also be offered in the fall; search Handshake for more information.

Space is limited, and it is possible that not all students who register will be able to participate in a particular workshop. If the workshop is full when you register, don't be discouraged. Look for additional offerings of this workshop series throughout the fall and spring semesters.
