Planning a successful career path starts with knowing who you are: your strengths, interests, values, motivations, and personality. How do you discover these things? By asking yourself:
- What is important to me?
- What do I like to do in my free time?
- What activities make me lose track of time?
- What are the most interesting jobs and careers I can think of?
- If I could do anything and money was no object, what would I do?
- What skills and activities come naturally to me?
The Career Development Center offers several assessment surveys to help you gain greater self-awareness. The Career Interest Areas, Interest Profiler, SKILLS, and Work Importance Locator are available online for free through WOIS/The Career Information System (site key required - please call 360-867-6193 for code), while the Campbell Interest & Skills Survey (PDF) and Myers-Briggs Type Indication (MBTI) (PDF) are fee based.
