It all 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 experienced career counseling specialists and a multitude of resources to help you answer these questions. Assessment surveys such as the Career Interest Areas, Interest Profiler, SKILLS, and Work Importance Locator, are available for free, while others such as the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Campbell Interest and Skill Survey (CISS) can be taken for a fee.
To begin utilizing these and other career exploration tools and resources, schedule an appointment with one of our career counseling specialists.
