Google-searching "career assessments" will net you a wide variety of options; some free, some fee-based. Here at the CCPD we have three options available to current students and alumni, free of charge.
Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? The StrengthsQuest assessment helps people uncover their talents and build upon them. If you are interested in more information about the StrengthsQuest, please contact the CCPD.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a commonly used personality assessment that comes with a Career Report. If you are interested in more information about taking the MBTI, please contact the CCPD.
To clarify the values most critical to your personal/professional fulfillment, this Work Values Self-Assessment (PDF 142 KB) describes a wide variety of satisfactions that people obtain from work. Look at the values and their definitions and rate the degree of importance that you would give each. If you are interested in talking with a Career Counselor about your results (which you may self-calculate), please contact the CCPD.
Have you been trying to decide how to incorporate your major or liberal arts interests into a possible post-graduation job? Have you been trying to determine how to include your many different interests into your major or career? The CCPD offers the Strong Interest Inventory—a career assessment that aligns your interests with opportunities for education, jobs, and leisure activities. If you are interested in more information about the SII, contact the CCPD.
