Career Pathways Resource

In an expanding labor market, it can be challenging to know about the many sub-specialties that exist in each field. Career Pathways were developed to help students learn more about the different career specializations within 16 different Career Clusters.

While the Career Pathways are not a comprehensive list of options, this resource can serve as a guide to help students, advisors and faculty help provide recommendations and keywords for further career exploration and research.

Career Services recognizes the ongoing need to expand Career Pathways with the current model as a starting place. With the help of our campus community and employer partners, we hope to explore and add more specific pathways to this tool as an ongoing effort to embrace change and support students by providing ideas and helping Huskers create career connections.
