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. Interested?

Strong Interest Inventory
If during this appointment a career advisor determines that you may benefit from taking the Strong Interest Inventory, then the adviser will email a link where you can take the assessment online at your convenience. You will not see the results of this assessment until the follow up appointment with a career advisor. This assessment must be interpreted by a Strong Interest Inventory certified career adviser which is why we administer the instrument in this way.
