2022-2023 Annual Report

Explore Career Communities

Did you know that your job search does not have to be limited by your major? The OU Career Center has created six Career Communities, based on industry rather than major. These Communities help students narrow their career aspirations into manageable and relevant fields of interest.

By choosing a Career Community, students are connected to specialized advising, career resources, job opportunities, networking events, and more. Students are encouraged to explore more than one Career Community! Still unsure about your career path? You can find helpful information and support through the “Exploration Community”.
