Career assessments can provide you with useful feedback about yourself, language to describe your personality and strengths, and major and career options to consider.
Strong Interest Inventory
The Strong Interest Inventory sorts people’s interests and values, employment areas, and occupations into six categories. This assessment gives you a great deal of feedback regarding potential career areas and occupations to consider, based on the theory that a match of interests and job tasks to those already in career fields indicate an occupation that may also fit for you.
Myer-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality assessment that assesses personality type based on four different preference pairs: where you focus your attention and get energy, what information you notice and trust, how you make decisions, and how you orient yourself to the outer world. Your preferences sort you into 1 of 16 personality types. In terms of career counseling, you will also receive a list of potential career paths to pursue.
StrengthsQuest is an assessment based on the theory that successful people are not successful because they have worked on their weaknesses, yet people find success by identifying their talents and developing them into strengths. This assessment identifies your top five themes of talent/strengths. Speaking with a Career Counselor will help you explore your top five talents/strengths, how you use them on a daily basis, how they are connected, and how to speak to your strengths to increase the chances of a successful interview.
