Northwestern State University students have a new place to find valuable information on the career planning process.

A Career Exploration Area has been set up in the Reference Room on the first floor of Watson Library through the efforts of Rebecca Boone, director of the Office of Counseling and Career Services, and Reference Librarian Elizabeth Graves.

“We hope these new resources will encourage students to use library services more often,” said Graves. “By coming over and using the Career Exploration Area, they can find out the many services available for them.”

Information is available on: descriptions, requirements, salary, outlook on all types of careers; tests that can help students understand themselves and identify careers that would allow them to use the personality strengths and practice tests for certain career fields. The Career Information Area can also help Northwestern State students prepare for interviews, build resumes, learn about searching for a job and find out how to make the transition to the world of work.

“We want to encourage use of the library because there is so much here for the students to use,” said Boone. “Hopefully, they will get used to coming here and will be encouraged to find out all that is available for them.”

Students who take online classes or who attend one of NSU’s other campuses can access the Career Exploration Area online by going to and clicking on career exploration.
