The Center for Life Beyond Reed

Explore and Discover Your Purpose

We believe that successful careers start by identifying work that aligns with your values and passions. CLBR offers a unique advising model that encourages students to begin their career pathing by first identifying their Community of Purpose. Then students can begin the process of exploring their career options by engaging in informational interviews, networking, shadows, and more!


Discover Your Purpose

Each Community of Purpose is assigned to an advisor with in-depth knowledge of that community to ensure a well-rounded advising experience for each student. Advisors are available for guidance on career pathing, job applications, fellowships, professional school, and more!

Communities of Purpose

What is Career Exploration?

Career exploration is engaging in various experiences that help you learn about different career options and figure out what you enjoy doing. It can also take place in the form of conversations and research that provide you with career information. Career exploration happens in a variety of different ways – not only through jobs and internships!
