Come to the University Career Center during our drop-in hours to see if additional assessments are right for you.

Strong Interest Inventory

The Strong Interest Inventory ($30) matches your interests with the interests of people who have been in career fields at least three years and are happy with their work. It takes about 30 minutes to complete this 317-item inventory and results are discussed with a career counselor.

You must schedule a career assessment interpretation session with a career counselor to receive your results. 

Clifton Strengths

Clifton Strengths ($30), formally StrengthsFinder, is based on positive psychology; helping individuals identify, develop, and use their strengths on a regular basis is more beneficial than focusing on overcoming weaknesses. The assessment helps you recognize your unique talents and learn how these talents can be used in your everyday life to maximize the potential for personal growth and career satisfaction. This assessment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Must meet with a career counselor to receive access information.
