Major and Career Exploration

Decisions about your major and career path should be informed by your Values, Interests, Passions, and Skills (VIPS). Utilize the Focus2 assessment or check out What can I do with this major? to jump-start this exploration.

Resumes and Cover Letters

Resumes and cover letters are important documents that showcase your experiences, skills, and interests. We encourage you to develop a resume freshman year and evolve it as you engage in experiences and develop new skills. Formatting guides and examples can be found on the School of Science Career and Internship site in Canvas.


Interviews are an opportunity to demonstrate your skills, interest in the role, and match for a particular organization. Whether you are interviewing for an internship, job, or graduate program you will want to be prepared. Improve your interviewing skills by scheduling a mock interview with a PREPs advisor.
