New Career Thought: ________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ 3. Old Career Thought: I worry a great deal about choosing the right field of study or occupation. It is common to worry about making important decisions. People sometimes worry less when they talk to a friend of family member about how they are feeling. Use your worry as a source of energy to move forward in choosing a field of study or occupation. New Career Thought: ________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ 4. Old Career Thought: I'll never understand enough about occupations to make a good choice. It is possible to take what you currently know about occupations and identify new opportunities which you can pursue. It is also possible for you to learn how to compare occupations. For example, taking a variety of courses may help you to consider different career possibilities. New Career Thought: ________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ 5. Old Career Thought: My age limits my occupational choice. We are all familiar with stereotypes that say that occupations are appropriate for people from certain groups. If your group membership plays a role in identifying appropriate occupations, it is important to understand your rights and responsibilities under federal anti-discrimination laws.

6. Old Career Thought: The hardest thing is settling on just one field of study or occupation. Often our worries about completing a task can lead us to believe it is much harder than it actually is. When trying to complete a complex task like choosing and occupation, simply break the task into smaller steps. These smaller tasks will be less intimidating and easier to complete. New Career Thought: ________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ 7. Old Career Thought: Finding a good job in my field is just a matter of luck. The meaning of the phrase “good job” varies from person to person. Ask yourself, “What makes a job good for me?” Your answer to this question will most likely involve your values or what is important to you. Do you want extra vacation time to spend with your friends and family? Do you want a job that requires you to travel? Knowing your values will help you to find a job that is good for you. New Career Thought: ________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ 8. Old Career Thought: Making career choices is so complicated, I am unable to keep track of where I am in the process. The process of career decision making is complex. It may be also helpful for you to talk to others about how they managed their career decisions. There are also many resources available that can guide you through the decision-making process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
