Your career counselor will assist in determining which assessments to use to help you better identify your strengths, interests, values and personality preferences. Many tools are available for the process and career counseling helps ensure accurate interpretation of the assessment results.
Some of the assessments that may be used include helping students determine their academic fit (such as the College Major Scorecard), their interests (the Strong Interest Inventory), their values (the Work Values Inventory), their abilities (the Career Ability Placement Survey) and their personality (the Jung Typology Test).
