Assessments

Sometimes a self-assessment exercise is helpful in determining your strengths and goals. While Career Services can also help you incorporate the results of self-assessments into your career planning, some services are offered through the Career Services located in R 004:

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

This on-line instrument is based on four basic aspects of human personality: how we interact with the world and where we direct our energy; the kind of information we naturally notice and remember; how we make decisions; and whether we prefer to live in a more structured way (making decisions) or in a more spontaneous way (taking in information). Time allotment: 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete plus 1-hour interpretation appointment. Please call ahead to schedule.

DISCOVER offers guidance and information to help people make these important career and education decisions. Ideas about who they are and what they want to become influence their career plans and decisions.

The DISCOVER curricula are designed to help people make career and life decisions. DISCOVER can help people who:

  • Don't have any idea what kind of career they want
  • Are in the workforce and now looking for a different career
  • Decided to go to college or go back to finish their degrees

  • Need technical training to get fast-growing hi-tech jobs
