Career Assessments

Two different career assessments are available for students interested in self-exploration: the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and the Strong Interest Inventory (SII).  These assessments can help generate career options based on your personality (MBTI) or interests (SII).  The assessments can be taken and reviewed in the following workshops: “Putting Your Personality to Work” and “Generating Career Ideas.”
