What Are Career Interest Communities?
Many majors don’t point to a specific career path, rather there are many possibilities to consider as you explore your academic and career interests. Career Interest Communities are industry-themed groups that help you explore your areas of interest and potential career pathways you could try.
Each community contains career ideas, majors and minors for exploration, and student and professional organizations that are unique to each group. These curated resources are designed to help you learn about your options and gain industry-specific information to help you land a job or internship.
We encourage you to explore as many Career Communities as you’d like and don’t forget to reach out to chat with a UNL Career Coach who can help you figure out your next steps, wherever you are in the process.
