Career Assessments

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

This assessment helps identify preferences in how you focus your attention, acquire information, make decisions, and how you orient toward the world. Knowing your personality preferences and learning about other people's can help in understanding your special strengths, what kind of work you might enjoy and be successful doing, and how people with different preferences can relate to each other and be valuable to society. There is a $15 fee to take this assessment. Talk to a Career Counselor during drop-in hours (T & TR 12-2pm)  to learn more about this assessment and how to take it.

Strong Interest Inventory

This assessment assists in identifying patterns of interests and how these compare with those of successful people in many occupations. The results are based on interests only, not abilities. This inventory may suggest occupations that you might find interesting but have not considered because you were never exposed to them. There is a $15 fee to take this assessment. Talk to a Career Counselor during drop-in hours (T & TR 12-2pm)  to learn more about this assessment and how to take it.

StrengthsQuest

This assessment, which is grounded in Positive Psychology and created by Gallup's Higher Education Division, can help students identify and develop their strengths by building on their natural talents--the way in which they most naturally think, feel, and behave as unique individuals. With the help of a career counselor, students can strategically determine a rewarding career path based on who they are, and can maximize their potential for strengths by building on their talents. This is also a great tool to help students prepare for interviews. There is a $15 fee to take this assessment. Talk to a Career Counselor during drop-in hours (T & TR 12-2pm)  to learn more about this assessment and how to take it.
