Career Assessments

One of the ways that The James W. Stuckert Career Center assists students in the exploration of college majors and future careers is through formal career assessments. The two major career assessments available to students are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory®. These assessments are easy to take and are administered and interpreted by the Career Center’s certified career advisors. These assessments can give students personal insight as to how their basic behavioral preferences and occupational interests can help them in selecting a college major.
