Explore Your Interests / Self Assessment

Career development is a process. It starts with knowing some important things about yourself:

  • Values: What do I need to feel satisfied in a career?
  • Interests: What topics intrigue me? What problems do I want to solve?
  • Personality: What environments and tasks suit me best?
  • Skills: What am I naturally good at? What do I have the capacity to become good at with practice or training?

Taking time to learn about yourself first will provide insights that guide your process.

Ready to explore? Look at the resources on this page, particularly the two self-guided assessments — PathwayU and TruMotivate.

As always, CES advisors are available to chat about any questions you have, and to help you navigate. Click the button at the top of this page to schedule an appointment to meet with a CES Advisor.
