* Current students and alumni requesting these services must be from degree programs in the schools that Career Services serves.
For more information on MBTI, Strong Inventory, or CliftonStrengths, please set up an appointment (or stop by for walk-ins) with a career advisor who serves your school to discuss how you can use these assessments in your career development, and to find out what the next steps are to take one or both inventories. In the meantime, consider starting with CareerExplorer, a free, in-depth career discovery platform.
Remember, career inventories and tests are not magic. They can aid your self-assessment process by highlighting your personality style or interests related to work and help you think about how your values or interests might match some specific career fields. However, you should talk with a career counselor at Career Services for a more personal and comprehensive evaluation of your career options and plans.
