Self assessment inventories
Career self assessment inventories are used as tools to help you identify your skills, values and interests as they relate to academic and career exploration.
Strong Interest and Skills Confidence Inventory will help you understand how your interests relate to the world of work and college majors and is available online once you meet with a Career Services staff member.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) will help you understand how your personality preferences relate to the world of work.
StrengthsQuest, the Clifton StrengthsFinder online assessment, is designed to help maximize one's potential by identifying your top five talents. You can use your results to leverage your strengths
to overcome challenges and reach your own personal academic and career goals.
If you are interested in taking either of these inventories, contact
Career Services to set up an appointment with a counselor who will help you determine the use of these resources in your career and academic planning. This process is done online with a follow-up appointment for a personal interpretation with a counselor. The inventories are offered to students free of charge.
