Personality & Career Assessments

Choosing a major or career often begins with self-assessment.

Consider scheduling an appointment with Career Services to decide which assessment(s) described below are right for you. Learn more about your Interest, Personality, Skills & Abilities, and Values; discuss your results and generate ideas for majors and careers to research.  Keep in mind, no single test can tell you "what you should be" and that successful career planning may require more than one appointment.
