Counseling and Career Services offers a variety of career assessment options to assist students in discovering their interests, values, skills, and personality preferences. Here are some brief descriptions of the tools available:
The Strong Interest Inventory (SII) is a psychological inventory used in career assessment or educational guidance to show how certain interests compare with the interests of people successfully employed in specific occupations. Students must meet with a counselor before beginning the Strong Interest Inventory assessment. Directions for taking the assessment will be distributed to the student after the initial meeting with your counselor.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality questionnaire designed to identify certain psychological differences according to typological theories. Students must meet with a counselor before beginning the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment. Directions for taking the assessment will be distributed to the student after the initial meeting with your counselor. A Combo Report will integrate the results of both the MBTI and the SII for ways to use the feedback in choosing a major and exploring career options.
The Clifton StrengthsFinder gives a customized report that lists your top five talent themes, along with action items for development and suggestions about how you can use your talents to achieve academic, career, and personal success.
The Career Values Sort Exercise is a simple tool that allows students to prioritize their values. Fifty-four variables of work satisfaction are listed and described. This as an effective tool for job seekers, those fine-tuning their present jobs and career changers at all ages and stages.
SIGI3 is an online career exploration system that integrates self-assessment with in-depth and up-to-date career information that is easy to use and provides students with a realistic view of the best educational and career options for their future success.
