Daily Staff Reporter
What's your major?
It's a question you'll hear repeat-
edly at the University, and from
relatives at family gatherings.
You can respond "undecided" for
a while - maybe even for a few
years. But sooner or later you'll have
to stop living off your parents'
money and make a career for
Before you decide on a career,
you need a major, or concentration,
as the University calls it. But beware
- most people don't have a con-
centration in an area in which they
will actually work in the future.
Career Planning and Placement
(CP&P) assistant director Tom
Lehker could also tell you that the
average person changes careers three
to five times and has 10-15 different
jobs in a lifetime.
CP&P has a great deal to offer
students whosneed help deciding on
a career or concentration, as well as
students who have known they were

going to be doctors, computer opera-
tors, or English teachers since they
were eight.
Each year CP&P hosts an aver-
age of 300 programs on various top-
ics, including career choices, gradu-
ate programs, and job search tactics.
First, you may want to attend a
tour of the facility. These are usually
offered in the first few months of
Fall term.
Then you could attend one of the
sessions devoted to exploring career
options, such as "Choosing Your
Major," the "Minority Career
Conference Workshop," or "Opport-
unities in U.S. Government and
Foreign Affairs."
Once you decide on an area of
study, and the time to enter the "real
world" is nearing, you will probably
want to attend one of two types of
workshops - those on graduate, law
and medical schools, or those on the
job search process.
Of course, CP&P offers all of
these - from practice interviewing
for medical schools to applying for

graduate schools to writing your re-
sume. CP&P will be sending a
schedule of this year's events to new
students at the beginning of fall
While programs and seminars are
important, they are not the only ad-
vice and aid CP&P has in store for
CP&P also hosts the On-Campus
Recruitment Program, which high-
lights open houses by major poten-
tial employers. Attend these infor-
mation sessions to receive help with
interviewing skills, to learn more
about potential jobs, and possibly to
even land that once-in-a-lifetime job.
Other services are available at the
office. CP&P has an extensive career
library, as well as pamphlets from
graduate, law and medical schools.
CP&P also has information about
internships, long-term employment
opportunities and summer job
openings. SIGI plus is a comput-
erized system of interactive guidance
and information given through

ight track
One of the most helpful services
CP&P offers is a reference letter
service. Here's a hint: open a file
now. Once you have a file, and have
buttered up a professor or TA
enough, you just give them a form
and ask for a recommendation.
You'd be surprised how difficult it is
to get three letters of recommenda-
tion at the last minute from profes-
sors who don't have the time and
don't even remember who you are
CP&P also staffs career coun-
selors. You can go in for an hour-
long appointment to ask questions
about classes, concentrations, and
careers. They also have afternoon
walk-in counseling to answer short
questions, or to give feedback on
your resume.
Whatever your career goals are,
go to CP&P yourself and take
advantage of all the services
available to you. CP&P is located at
3200 in the Student Activities
