Assessment tools can give you renewed insight into or confirmation of your interests, strengths, work environment preferences and personality. During periods of career change, the insight that results can help you plan to successfully navigate change.
Leverage Your Alumni Benefits
Career Services offers the following assessments to University alumni at a significantly reduced cost as compared to purchasing them on your own. This small fee includes both the assessment and a session to discuss your results. Call 609-258-3325 to get started.
Strong Interest Inventory (SII)
The Strong Interest Inventory can help you discover your interests, preferences and personality. It identifies themes and specific areas of interest, and compares yours with those of individuals in a variety of occupations. This can help you identify options to investigate further.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
MBTI helps you identify natural personality preferences that influence how you make decisions, interact, gather information and get energized. The MBTI does not measure aptitudes, but helps you better understand yourself: your motivations, strengths and potential areas of growth.
The StrengthsFinder (part of StrengthsQuest) helps you discover and develop your strengths across 34 talent areas. After taking the assessment online, you will be provided with a report detailing your top five strengths, which can help you achieve academic, career and personal success. A follow-up meeting with a counselor is recommended, wherein you can discuss the results and craft an action plan.
