What is Career Exploration?

Career exploration can be seen as the continuous process of learning about career paths, jobs, industries, fields, and roles that fit your professional interests, goals, values, and skills. Whether you are exploring majors, or looking into new career options post-graduation, career exploration can happen at any point in your life (and sometimes multiple times!). It is often a lifelong process for many of us as we discover new passions, skills or needs through different experiences and life events.
