Personality & Career Assessments

Personality & career assessments are tools that are designed to help individuals understand how a variety of personal attributes (i.e., interests, values, preferences, motivations, aptitudes and skills), impact their potential success and satisfaction with different career options and work environments.

A misconception of many desiring to take career assessments is that a “test” will tell them what to do with their lives which is furthest from the truth. Personality & career assessments will not tell you what you could or should do. They will, however, help you sort out thoughts and ideas about majors, career paths and occupations.
