Career Assessments

Do you want to explore career ideas and options? Do you need help choosing a major? Love your major, but don't know how you can translate it into a career? We can help!

For an appointment with a career counselor to complete a personalized Career Profile, contact Betty Butterbaugh at x5242 or email.

Making decisions about what career field to pursue (and which major will best prepare you) involves these steps:

1. Know Yourself

2. Research Academic Majors

3. Research Careers

4. Get Experience & Make a Plan

 

Know Yourself

Self assessment is discovering your interests, abilities/skills, values, personality type, and decision-making style and how all these characteristics fit into careers that would be right for you. Completing a Career Profile appointment with the Office of Career Services is a great way to explore how your personality, interests and values relate to potential careers. The profile utilizes the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Strong Interest Inventory, and a values sheet.

For a Career Profile appointment, stop by Career Services to pick up the assessment materials. Complete the materials on your own, then return them to Career Services to set up a 1-hour appointment with a career counselor.

There are also some online tools available to evaluate your interests and personality type.  Note that some sites require a fee, whereas all assessments through Career Services are free.
