Explore Career Assessments

We're pretty excited about career assessments because it's a chance for you and other students to:

  • Discover your natural talents and how those can related to a career
  • See how your interests and personality influence the type of roles, environments, and organizations you might enjoy working in

Learning about one of the most important topics in your life (i.e., yourself) and reflecting on what you discover can go a long way in helping you narrow down what it is that you want to do.

And it's also helpful when talking to friends and family who ask you what you want to do.

Plus it's chance for us to get to know more about you and how we can be there for you while you explore internships/jobs and potential career paths.

 

Consider taking Clifton Strengths if you're wondering:

  • What your natural talents are and how they can relate to career options
  • How you can leverage your talents in different responsibilities

Consider taking Myer Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) if you're wondering:

  • What your personality type says about tasks that you may enjoy and/or environments that you might like to work in

Consider taking Strong Interest Inventory (SII) if you're wondering:
