How to Choose a Major Workshop  (COC Student ID# required)
Are you undecided, have too many interests, or need help narrowing down a major that will set your career path? If you answered yes then we can help. Workshops lead by a Career Counselor, you will be given the tools and guidance to narrow your focus to select a major. All workshops are held on the Valencia campus, lasting 1.5 hours.
At this workshop you’ll learn how to choose a major and what techniques you can use to explore your options. Part of choosing a major encourages students to align their personality type with their interests. This workshop introduces two career assessment tools, the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). It also introduces other factors to guide you through the process of choosing a major. You will leave the workshop with an access code to take the SII and MBTI and a better understanding of how to move forward with selecting the major that is right for you. Be sure to sign up for the MBTI and SII Results Workshop, to connect your personality type to your interests, after you have taken these assessments.
