Career Assessments

Have you been trying to figure out what types of careers would be a good fit for your personality? The CCPD often uses the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) with students. If you are interested in more information about the MBTI, contact the CCPD.

Have you been trying to decide what major is the best for you? Visit with your Academic Advisor and try talking with a Departmental Student Advisor, who knows firsthand what it's like to be (for example) a Philosophy major or a Public Policy & Urban Affairs concentrator.

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.

Have you been wondering what you are really “good” at and how that might translate into a next step after graduation? The CCPD offers the StrengthsQuest—an assessment that helps people uncover their talents. From their website, “Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Chances are, you don't. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths.” If you are interested in more information about the StrengthsQuest, contact the CCPD.
