Welcome to the Explore Your Interests page! This space is designed for first-years and sophomores as you reflect, envision, and research potential pathways. Whether you’re passionate about a particular industry or simply curious about different career options, our resources are designed to meet you where you are.  

We recommend beginning with our Career Resources section. Here, you can take self-guided assessments to gather insights into your interests and strengths that can inform an action plan. 

The Loeb Center offers engaging events, access to knowledgeable advisors, and valuable resources to help you gradually narrow your career focus. Remember, it’s okay to take your time and explore different paths; the more experiences you have, the better equipped you’ll be to recognize when a role, a job function, an organization, a sector, or theme in work resonates with you. 

As always, we’re here to support you along the way. If you would like to speak with a career advisor who specializes in first-year and sophomore experiences, please schedule an appointment with Assistant Director of Early Career Exploration Sherry Gomez or Program Director for Charles Hamilton Houston Internship Program Emily Tareila today!
