Career Assessments

A career assessment can provide insight and direction to enhance self-knowledge and affirm your career direction or decide which careers to explore. There are different options based on your time investment and whether you want to consider your interests and/or personality.

You may meet with a Career Advisor to help make connections between your assessment results and your career exploration and planning process. To learn more, call 360-992-2155 or visit your Career Center in the Penguin Union Building (PUB) 002. The following assessments are available to students and community:

Interests

SuperStrong

The SuperStrong assessment is a shortened version of the Strong Interest Inventory. This interest-based assessment helps you see where your interests intersect with potential major and career possibilities.

Strong Interest Inventory (SII)

The Strong Interest Inventory® provides robust insight into a person’s interests and career motivators, to help them to consider potential careers, their educational path, action steps and the world of work.

Personality

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely-used assessment of personality type and preferences. The MBTI identifies and describes your strengths and unique preferences and helps you to answer the questions: “How does my personality inform my choice of work environment?” or “What careers are popular among people with my personality type?”  

Purchasing Strong and MBTI Assessments

Purchase career assessments at the Clark College Cashier's Office and contact Career Services at 360-992-2902 or careerservices@clark.edu for instructions on how to take the assessment(s). 

All Strong Interest Inventory and MBTI assessments require a 90-minute follow-up session, during which a career advisor will share the assessment results and explain the meaining in detail. Due to the college's remote operations, Career Services is offering these sessions exclusively in a one-on-one Zoom meeting format. You can schedule your meeting time with staff in Career Services. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, staff from Career Services can assist you before the meeting; you may also visit this Zoom help center.
