LinkedIn's Field of Study Explorer Tool helps you connect career paths with your major!

Have you ever wondered, “What can I do with my major”? 
Well, LinkedIn launched a new tool this year to help you find out what others with your major are pursuing!

This new tool, Field of Study Explorer, is designed to help you explore career paths based on college majors. The Field of Study Explorer provides you with information on:
  • Where people work
  • What they do
  • Where they went to school
  • Where they live; and
  • How you are connected
The best part of the information depicted on the graphs for each of these areas? They are interactive! Simply select any of the blue bars to “dive deeper” into the information available.

To get started with the Field of Study Explorer tool, log-in to your LinkedIn account and select the “interests” section at the top of the screen. Under “interests”, select “education” and then “see fields of study”. To explore different majors, select the “explore more” drop down menu on the right side of the screen.

If you have any questions, on exploring different career paths with your major contact the Office of Career Services.
