If you are interested in one or more of the assessments below, please make an appointment with your Career Communities Coach to determine which assessments would be a good fit for you. A regular 15, 30, or 45 minute appointment would work for this.

The MBTI indicates your personality preferences. It also provides feedback on work settings and various careers where your personality type might be either a complement or a challenge.
Strong Interest Inventory (SII)
The SII measures your level of interest in occupational areas, activities, school subjects, and work environments.
The CliftonStrengths assessment generates a list of your top five talent themes, along with action items for development and suggestions about how you can use your talents to achieve academic, career, and personal satisfaction.
Meaningful Work Kit
The Meaningful Work Kit empowers you to identify and prioritize what is essential to you at your core, work cultures that are a fit for you, and skills you enjoy using. The Kit is a practical tool that gives you concrete and valuable insights. You can make a 45-minute appointment with your career coach to do this card sort activity.
