Professional Development

 Career Services offers  assessments which can provide personal and professional insight on your personality, clarify interests, and allow for the opportunity for growth and change. For individual consultations, participants will take the online assessment and then make an hour coaching appointment to go over results. The session will conclude with the individual walking away with a copy of their results and a book for further exploration. Workshop information is listed below.

 

This assessment looks at the individual's motivations, clarifies interests, culture fit, and provides a direction for individuals to explore careers.  Built on psychologist John Holland’s theory, it’s backed by more than 80 years of research into how people of similar interests are employed, and what motivates individuals in the workplace.

This assessment is great if you: 
  • Want to find a career that compliments your learning, working, and leadership style
  • Want to gain a deeper self-awareness about your strengths 
  • Are interested in changing career fields but do not know where to begin
  • Are trying to figure out your major or how your interest could be turned into a career

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment is one of the world’s most popular personality tools—because it works. With more than 70 years of science-based, research-based insight, it is no wonder that the MBTI assessment is used by more than 88 percent of Fortune 500 companies.

The MBTI helps you identify your unique preferences and gifts. You will gain insight into how you direct and receive energy, take in information, decide and come to conclusions, and approach the outside world. Your natural preferences in these four areas sort you into one of 16 distinct MBTI personality types. Additionally, the insight you gain into yourself will allow you to better understand and value individual differences.  Understanding these types gives you objective insight that you can use to enhance your professional and personal relationships, as well as your direction, focus, and choices.

With practical insight that’s easy to understand and implement, the MBTI assessment has helped thousands of organizations and millions of people around the world improve how they communicate, learn, and work.
