Career assessments are tools that can be used to help identify your interests and skills to assist in selecting a major and career choice. The results are meant to be used to help in the decision-making process. The results can also assist a career advisor on how best to guide you, so please feel free to bring the information with you when you meet with one.
There are a number of tools that can help with self-assessment. One that’s particularly good is called Career Cruising.
