8. They All Sound Good (or none of them)...Help!       

As mentioned above, we encourage you to investigate more than one Community, and meet with more than one advisor to learn more about what areas and kinds of jobs/internships may be of most interest to you! 

If you are deciding between one or more communities, but have some specific ideas or questions, just pick one as a place to start the conversation, come on in, and meet with us!

If you're curious about which career areas students with your major most often choose, check out this link Looking at these options may help you decide which Community might be a good place to start the conversation.


But if you really are feeling stuck and can't decide where to begin, the link in the image above will take you to the Career Exploration Center (CEC) where you can begin to narrow down your options.

The CEC serves all UW Madison undergraduate students and can provide guidance as you explore multiple majors and potential career directions. They are a great place to begin the conversation if you:

  • Are unsure about what to major in and discussing careers would help with your decision
  • Want assistance in identifying your personality type, values, skills and interests to help discover what could be  good career and major options for you
