Career Assessment

If you are having difficulty choosing a major or career path, you may benefit from the career assessments offered by Career Services or the Counseling Center. Both offices offer personality and interest assessments that may be helpful for you in making your decision. You should start with the online FOCUS program. After logging in, go to the SELF ASSESSMENT section and complete all five assessments. You will get interesting results from each assessment, including suggestions for possible majors and careers. If you still need guidance after completing these assessments, you can contact the Counseling Center or Career Services for more assistance.

Which office would better meet your needs?

While both offices offer the same assessments, there is a difference in the scope of the interpretations you will receive from each office. For career-specific, nuts-and-bolts advice about major and career choices, Career Services can help you. For in-depth advice geared to the whole person and covering a wider range of issues that may affect career choice, the Counseling Center would be a better choice. To discuss whether career assessments might be helpful for your situation, please contact Mark Sisson.
