Career Clusters

Explore the Career Clusters

Major does not always dictate choice of occupation.

The Center for Career Exploration and Success organizes services, events, and communication around career clusters: groupings of common occupations that fall within broad career sectors. Career clusters allow you to focus your professional interests while you explore similar careers within broad industry categories. We urge you to consider your interests, skills and preferences on work settings and job functions in relation to your occupational options and to acquire skills and experiences throughout college that would align to your career goals.
