Self-Assessment Tools

Self-assessment is the first step of the career planning process. During self-assessment you gather information about yourself in order to make an informed career decision. The Career Services office in the Student Success Center in the Robert L. Strickland Center, Room 2414, can provide you with a variety of self-assessment tools to help determine the best career path for you. A self-assessment should include a look at the following:

  • Values: the things that are important to you, like achievement, autonomy and status
  • Interests: what you enjoy doing, i.e. playing golf, hanging out with friends and taking long walks
  • Personality: a person’s individual traits, motivational drives, attitudes and needs
  • Skills: the activities you are good at, such as writing, computer programming and teaching
