Career Counseling

Career Assessment

Career assessments are a great starting step for career explorers, job seekers, and students at all stages of the career exploration process. Career Services offers several free and fee-based assessments designed to help you discover yourself and your career options. Please note, these independent tests have not been fully evaluated for reliability and validity. We strongly encourage you to make a counseling appointment to discuss your assessment results.
