External Factors

External factors are not personal and are easier to manage than internal factors.

  • Unrelatedness of majors and careers: Understanding that majors and careers have developed independently of each other will help you avoid becoming stuck wondering what you can do with a particular major.
  • Lack of information: Often you just don't have enough information to be comfortable making a decision. You have had very little opportunity up to this point to learn about different majors and careers. Your career center is an excellent place to begin. If you're more independent-minded, begin researching on your own.
  • Too much information: This is particularly true since the advent of the World Wide Web. A huge amount of information is available, and it's easy to become overwhelmed. Don't give up: You can learn how to quickly and efficiently find good, accurate information on the web, and your career center can help.
