Career Exploration

Maybe you’re not sure what to major in. Or maybe you like your major but aren’t sure what career options are available. We can help. Career exploration includes thinking about what you value, identifying your strengths and interests, exploring majors and careers, and developing a plan. Take the first step by clicking on the links below.

Resume, Cover Letter, and LinkedIn

A resume is your professional introduction to an employer or graduate program. Create a resume that highlights how your education, skills, experiences, and accomplishments will benefit each position you apply to. KSC Students and Alumni: log into Handshake and visit the Career Center Resources page for an expanded selection of KSC resume and cover letter samples by academic major.


Internships can help you gain knowledge and skills, explore your values and the impact you have on society, learn about various professions, and easily transition to the professional world or graduate school.

Interview Skills

A job interview is one of the most important parts of a job search. It’s an opportunity to talk about the skills, experience, knowledge, and value you will bring to the organization. Need help? Schedule an appointment for a practice interview with Career Services.

Graduate School

Career Services assists students in planning for graduate school. Ideally, graduate school planning should begin early in a student’s college career to assure that prerequisite courses are taken and that students are well-prepared for admissions examinations.
