Career Development and Exploration

Use our extensive career services tools to help you chart your course.


The Career Services Team knows how important it is for you to feel not only confident in your choice of major but also assured that you are on the right path toward a career that you will excel in and enjoy. For these reasons, you are encouraged to use our career exploration resources early and often throughout your time at DelVal.

As part of our strategy for connecting students to the best career resources for their particular fields of study and interests, we often recommend major-specific job search sites, internship opportunities and professional associations or journals, as well as tapping into our expansive alumni network and database of industry contacts. We are also proud to partner with the following subscription services:

WhatCanIDoWithThisMajor.com can help you explore majors and identify career pathways affiliated with different academic disciplines. Explore typical career areas and types of employers that hire in these fields, as well as strategies for making yourself a more marketable candidate.

MyPlan.com can help you make well-informed decisions about your education and career. The service is open to our students and alumni. This site provides a comprehensive career assessment tool that assists users in making career choices. It offers the following four career assessment areas:

  • Career Personality Test
  • Career Interests Inventory
  • Career Skills Profiler
  • Career Values Assessment

To access MyPlan, contact the CSPD office at cspd@delval.edu. We also recommend that you schedule an appointment with one of our staff members to review and discuss your results.
