Assessments can be a great way for you to explore your interests, strengths and values and learn about how your personality affects the major and career decision making process. Career Services offers several assessments that can be helpful in generating ideas and potential careers.

There are many ways to identify occupations that fit your personal profile: researching them online, using self-assessment instruments, talking with professionals in the field, and attending company presentations on campus.
