Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
This personality assessment looks at who you are as a person and how it can impact your career choices. It is based on the theory that understanding your strengths and personality type will help you understand the types of careers and activities in which you might thrive and enjoy. The MBTI Career Report will have a list of possible careers based on your personality type that you may enjoy. It will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete the assessment online.
Strong Interest Inventory (Strong)
The Strong measures your preferences towards a large range of occupations, work tasks, leisure activities, and academic subjects. It then compares your interests to those in a variety of occupations who enjoy their work. The Strong also provides information on how your interests can be linked to majors, campus activities, co-ops, and part-time jobs. A list of possible occupations will be generated and the assessment will take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete online.
