CAREER EXPLORATION AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
What do you enjoy enough to spend 88,000 hours of your life doing?
If you work 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year, for 44 years, that's how many hours you'll invest! Most of us need to work to get by, so why not enjoy what you do? The Career Services staff has a wide variety of free tools and activities to help you discover the type of major and career direction that you will find enjoyable and rewarding. Below you will find a link to our new 24/7 online assessment tool.
DISCOVER WHERE YOU "FIT" IN THE WORLD OF WORK!
TypeFocus measures three interactive concepts: personality, interests and values. Through this program, you will gain personal insights and use that knowledge to develop rewarding relationships and discover careers that are best suited to your individual strengths. You can narrow your search from thousands of career choices to a few dozen. You can fine-tune your choices with over 10 search options such as "the fastest growing jobs" or "green careers" or by "knowledge" or "skills."
You will discover what further training is needed, create educational goals and career plans, and become confident that you are on the right track.
When people understand their personality preferences, they often experience a surprised "ah-ha" feeling of enlightenment. Choices and events that used to be puzzling now make sense.
