Google-searching "career assessments" will net you a wide variety of options; some free, some fee-based. Here at the CCPD we have four 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 schedule an appointment with a career counselor.
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 schedule an appointment with a career counselor.
To clarify the values most critical to your personal/professional fulfillment, this Work Values Self-Assessment (PDF, 142KB) 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 schedule an appointment with a career counselor.
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 recommends the O*NET Interest Profiler—a career assessment that helps you find out how your interests relate to the world of work. The O*NET Interest Profiler is free and accessible to the public, and Career Counselors enjoy talking with students about their results.
