Big Future Explore Careers
The Big Future Explore Careers webpage provides students with a way to explore different majors based on their interests. What is unique about this part of the Big Future website is that it helps to facilitate more abstract thinking in terms of career goals. Big Future recognizes that people have multiple interests, and it provides several examples of careers that fuse more than one interest. Additionally, the webpage provides real-life examples of how leaders and other students chose their majors in college.
"From career profiles written in student-friendly language, to multimedia video content, digital learning games and a modern, intuitive interface, Career Cruising engages students to learn about themselves, explore their options, create a plan, and bring that plan to life."
