What can assessments do?
Assessments are designed to help you identify your interests, skills, personality type, and values and how they can be best matched with your academic or career pursuits. Assessments do not provide a definitive answer to the question "What career should I choose?" Instead, they give you suggestions of a variety of careers that might be a good match for you. You will benefit the most from career assessments if you see a Career Specialist to assist you with the interpretation of the results.
