UCS offers a number of career assessments that can supplement the self-assessment process. Assessments are tools utilized by career counselors to help you gain further insight into your interests, skills, personality and values. These can be powerful and useful tools when used in conjunction with other self-assessment exercises and career exploration activities, but there are limitations to career assessments. They cannot and do not define you, nor do they tell you what you should do. They may suggest areas for further exploration, and give you a place to begin further research and evaluation. Assessments can be a valuable resource, but they can also be misleading if you are not ready to accurately and honestly assess yourself.
Meet with a career counselor to discuss where you’re at in the self-assessment process and whether or not a career assessment would be the next logical step in your self-assessment process.
