The Center for Career & Professional Development has a wealth of resources for helping you find out what kinds of jobs are out there and what you can do with your major and your interests.  We offer online resources as well a physical Career Library that is open during weekly office hours. 


Self Assessments

Try some of these self-assessments, which can help you understand what your talents and interests are and how they can be applied to specific career fields.

Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI)

This indicator helps you understand how you relate to other people, make decisions, and solve problems, all of which are helpful in determining the career path that’s best for you. The MBTI is completed online, using access information provided by your career counselor. Once completed, you will then meet with your career counselor to interpret your results and relate them to career decisions.

Strong Interest Inventory

Assesses your work-related interests and coverts them into one of six career categories: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. The Strong is completed online, using access information provided by your career counselor. Once completed, you will then meet with your career counselor to review and interpret your results.

SkillScan Card Sort

SkillScan Card Sort helps you identify your natural strengths and key transferable skills for use in your career development. It will help you identify occupations that use your desired skills, determine which skills you would like to acquire or further develop, understand how your skills are important to employers, and describe your skills to an employer both on your resume and in an interview.
