Career exploration is a process and requires much effort on your part. Internship and Career Services (ICS) can help you get started on the road to planning your career. We recommend that students meet regularly with their academic advisor and periodically with a counselor in our office to help with career planning. The following resources are available to all Butler University students and alumni.
Self Assessments Resources
ICS offers both the Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). These assessments help individuals learn more about themselves and can be helpful in choosing or changing a major or career path.
Please contact ICS at email@example.com or (317) 940-9383 or stop by Atherton Union 315 to make an appointment with a career advisor. Your advisor will determine whether one or more of the career assessments are right for you.
Check out the What Can I Do With This Major resource to explore a wide variety of majors and possible career opportunities within those majors. Please note, the majors represented are not solely Butler University majors. Please meet with your academic advisor to receive specific information regarding majors offered at Butler.
The ICS office has been developing and creating Industry Guides for students interested in receiving general career-related information and advice on specific industry fields. Are you interested in exploring a career in Government or Public Relations? Or Nonprofits? Or what about a career in Marketing or Healthcare? There are so many career fields out there, but it can be difficult to know where to start. Your first step should be to check out our available Industry Guides for more detailed information and tips on how to jump start your career in industry fields that interest you! They are currently available in our office (AU315) and will be made available digitally here soon!
