Self-assessment is an important step in the career planning process. During self-assessment you gather information about yourself in order to make an informed career decision. We offer a variety of self-assessment tools to help you determine the best 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
You may sign up for an in-person career assessment workshop by using this registration form. Registration is required. Workshops are free.
