UACDC offers many different tools to assist EMU students and alumni in mapping out career goals and/or deciding on a major or minor. Some of the instruments we use include:

  • Individual Appointments - All EMU students and alumni are welcome to meet with a career advisor to discuss possible career directions and/or concerns. Sessions are generally a half hour to an hour long and are by appointment only. To schedule an advising session, please call 734.487.0400.
  • SIGI3 - SIGI3 can help you systematically examine your work-related values, interests, and skills. It can be useful for any student trying to pick a major as this system provides a wealth of information about a wide variety of careers. Use your my.emich email to register.
  • Type Focus - This online resource looks at personality preferences, values, skills and interests and allows you to relate them all to potential careers and occupations. Request a site password and begin your exploration today!
