Interest & Personality Assessments

"What are my interests and how can I find career paths that interest me?"

Assessments can help start the conversation about some of the factors that influence, shape, and inform your career thoughts. These assessments are not meant to be an end-all answer in dictating what you should do with your life. Think of these assessments as a tool that will help you and your counselor have a common language to start the discussion of what is important to you as you consider your career path. Make an appointment with one of our counselors today, and ask about one of the following assessments!

Strong Interest Inventory (SII), Profile & College Report

Online Assessment, takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

The SII is based on the idea that there are six types of people and six corresponding types of work environments. The more similar you are to the environment in which you work the more satisfied and productive you are likely to be. The assessment also helps you determine how your likes and dislikes match up with those people who enjoy their work in a wide range of occupations.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Career Report

Online Assessment, takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

The MBTI is one of the most widely used personality instruments in the world today. The instrument measures four dimensions of personality:  Extraversion (E) vs. Introversion (I); Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N); Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F); Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P).  You will receive a four-letter code representing your MBTI type out of the possible 16 combinations. Your type suggests what kind of work might be meaningful to you and the style with which you might like to do your job.
