Career Assessment

Undecided Major?

Am I on the right career path?

What is my work personality and work environment?

What can I do with my major?

What are my strengths?

Career Services offers three career related assessments. Students should meet with a career counselor to discuss which career assessment is best suited for their current needs.

For students to truly benefit from the type of information a career assessment can offer and relate their specific experiences to the assessment, all career assessment results must be reviewed with a career development specialist.

To take a career assessment follow these procedure:

  1. Meet with a career development specialist to determine which career assessment if right for you at this phase of your life.
  2. Get the login information from your career development specialist. Login information will not be given over the phone.
  3. Take the career assessment online.
  4. Schedule an interpretation session with your career development specialist.

The following career assessments focus on a variety of different areas of self discovery, such as personality, skills, interests, values and strengths to identify occupational options and career paths.

Strong Interest Inventory

Used by more than 70 percent of U.S. colleges and universities, the Strong Interest Inventory® assessment is one of the world's most widely respected and frequently used career planning tools. It helps high school and college students—as well as people in transition—make fulfilling career choices.

Helping Students Succeed

But before students can select a career, they first need to find the path that's right for them. The Strong assessment can help. By giving students insight into their interests, preferences and personal styles, the Strong enables them to identify specific courses, jobs, internships and activities they're likely to enjoy. And that can greatly increase the likelihood that they'll stay in school and ultimately graduate.

Schedule an appointment with a career counselor to take assessment by calling 903-565-5862.


The TypeFocus Careers Assessment helps you achieve your career goals by answering the three questions that every career explorer must ask:

Who am I?

Where am I going?

How will I get there?
