Starting college requires you to consider and answer a lot of big questions, like what career should I pursue? This question requires you to consider a number of different factors such as what interests you have, what are you passionate about and what are the career options available that match your interests and passions.
So if you are feeling nervous or overwhelmed about making this big decision - don’t worry- you are not alone! Luckily there are a number of resources to help you along the way.
One of those options is me3, a self-assessment tool for Sun Devils that can help you match your interests and personality to a major or degree program.
Developed at Arizona State University, me3 is one of a kind interactive and visual tool that helps you begin answering these big career questions. Me3 takes on a gamification approach and presents users a series of images that will help to narrow down your career interests. At the end of the me3 game, you are presented with three careers that are best aligned to your interests. You can then explore those careers by reviewing additional information such as skills needed, average salary and demand for the career. In addition to that, me3 also provides all the college degrees available at ASU that provide the necessary education needed to pursue the career.
So what are you waiting for? You have nothing to lose and only lots of great insight to gain. Get started!
