Career Assessments

Whether you are a recent graduate or a seasoned professional, it is always important to reflect upon your own personal strengths and career interests. Professionally designed tests are available that can help you to better define the career choices that are right for you. We currently offer the Myers-Briggs and Strong Interest Inventory Assessments. These computerized tests may be completed on the internet and are interpreted by an Alumni Career Counselor during a counseling session.
