Career & Self-Assessments

Making a major or career decision involves asking yourself a number of self-reflecting questions. Key and poignant questions can help determine what motivates you, where your skills or potential lay, and what you want out of life. This process is called a career- or self-assessment. The outcomes of these assessments can be quite enlightening and are designed to help you choose a career or major that best suits you as an individual.
