Self-Assessment Resources

Begin your career planning with some useful self-assessment tools. Below are links to a select list of Web sites that can help you to evaluate your personality, skills, interests, and values. Please be aware that these assessment exercises are helpful tools but are not predictors of employment success. Be sure to meet with a career counselor to discuss your career interests.

Throughout the process of self-assessment, give some serious thought to the following questions:

  • What are your successes? What skills do you possess?
  • What experiences are most important to you? Why?
  • What are your strengths?
  • What kind of tasks do you most like to perform? Why?
  • What are your interests? How do you want to incorporate these into your job or career?
  • With what kinds of people do you want to associate?
  • What kind of lifestyle is important to you?

Don't know what field of interest you'd like to explore? Take the Strong Interest Inventory! Offered through the CRC, this assessment provides you with useful insights about your personality, interests, and values, and helps you begin to explore the career fields of particular relevance to you. Drop In to take the assessment (plan to spend about a half hour), then schedule an appointment with a career counselor to go over the results.
