Career Assessment Resources at the Graham Office
By: Kelsey Zody
Discovering what career is best for you, can be an intimidating process. With hundreds of different paths, knowing where to start looking is the hardest first step. Here at the Graham Office of Career Management we utilize 4 different tests to help you determine your strengths and weaknesses. The tools we use are: The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Strong Interest Inventory, Career Leader, and Strengths Finder.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) provides an in-depth exploration of your personality type. A deep understanding of how you’re wired gives valuable career-decision insights into your strengths and weaknesses.
Next, the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) provides an in-depth exploration of your interests, and how those interests can inform major-selection and career-path decisions.
The Career Leader helps answer the question: Where do you fit in? Discern best-fit fields & specific career paths that align with your unique interests, motivators & skills.
Finally, the Strengths Finder was developed by Gallup, CliftonStrengths allows students to discover what they naturally do best. Learn how to develop your greatest talents into strengths so as to maximize your potential, personally and professionally.
After you decide which test you are going to take, schedule an appointment with a Graham Career Advisor to help dive into the meaning of your results. They can then help point you in the right direction of where to find jobs/internships that will best flex your strengths!
