Career Assessments

What is a Career Assessment?
Career Assessments are tools that help you identify your values, interests, and skills. After identifying what makes up these key areas, the assessments will then match you up with careers that compliment your personal values, interests, and skills.

 Why do a Career Assessment?
Career assessments are extremely valuable and informative because they open your mind to new and exciting opportunities; you may be surprised about the jobs you are matched with. I always encourage people to perform a career assessment because what you think you are interested in may not exactly fit with you interests. Moreover, you could potentially be matched with careers that you never knew existed. The results can be eye-opening and exciting.

 Career Services has 2 popular Career Assessments that can be accessed through Career Zone:
