Career Roadmaps

Each roadmap guides you with a description of the field, general skills, sample UF majors to explore, UF organizations to get involved with, sample local opportunities, job boards for internships and full-time jobs as well as sample employers who recruit UF students.

The roadmaps are not grouped by major. We know that majors do not equal careers. Majors teach transferable skills that are required foundations in many careers and employers are increasingly interested in these transferable skills. You can use these roadmaps to begin exploring, preparing, and getting started at every stage of your major/career/job exploration.
