Since high school, you’ve probably heard the debate between choosing a major that aligns with your passions or a major that is practical. The Graham Office believes the best approach is to balance both passion and practicality! We want you to find a career path that combines your strengths and values.

Let’s do a little exercise. Look at the graphic below:

Now, it’s your turn to jot down some ideas. Grab a piece of paper and write answers for each circle:

  • What do you love doing?
  • What are you good at?
  • What jobs are you aware of?

When you’re done, review your answers. Do you see any themes across the three questions? Did you struggle answering one or more questions? Not sure what your answers are telling you?

Reflecting on your responses can provide valuable insights into your passions, strengths, and potential career paths. If you’d like to delve deeper into these findings or have guidance in interpreting them, we encourage you to visit our office & look at our resources, below.
