Learn More About Yourself and Your Interests

Create a list of all the “best moments” in your life – those things that made you feel good about yourself. Then ask yourself:

  • Is there a consistent theme running through these moments?
  • Was I being creative or was I in charge of something?
  • Was I inventing some new way of approaching a problem?
  • Was I using my speaking ability?

Have a friend look at your list or set up an appointment with Career Services to discuss your findings!
