Assessment

Assessment

What do you need in your job or career? What makes you happy and fulfilled? Where are your strengths? What are your values? Spend some time to spend some time on dreams and desires so you can find the best job match possible.

Contact your Career Counselor to take one of these assessments.

Strong Interest Inventory

Where do my interests fit best in the job world today?
The Strong assessment is useful for identifying job areas where you might fit in well. As an indication of that fit, this assessment matches your interests to the interests of professionals happy in their careers. That’s why the Strong assessment is a good place to start when considering new career options.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

Where is a good fit in the job world for my personality type?
This assessment provides a useful measure of eight personality preferences that help you understand how you operate in the world and interact with others. The MBTI takes about 30 minutes to complete online. The results are sent to your Career Counselor for interpretation and discussion in a follow-up appointment.

Career Resilience

How do I strengthen my ability to thrive in the face of change?
Take a short assessment that examines what strengths you have to successfully maneuver through the waves of change in your job and industry. Then learn how you can grow to become a champion of change, making the most of each transition.

Values

What do your values have to do with your career development?
Think of them as a compass. If your career is at odds with your true values, you may experience feelings of unrest, discontent, and self-doubt. You’ll feel like you’re moving in the wrong direction and your productivity may suffer. Are you only in it for the money, or do you have ambition to move up the ladder? Is there something you feel called to do? Is your work life taking too much away from your home life or vice versa? Value questions like these can give insight into what you need to make your career more satisfying and productive.

Transferrable Skills

How do I leverage my current skills to build something better?
You have more skills than you know! This worksheet will help you identify all the skills you have developed through work at jobs, in the community and at home. Market and draw on all these skills when transferring from one job, or even one career, to another.
