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?”
