Learn more about yourself

  • Skills
    • Choosing a career path that aligns with your skills will help you be successful in your professional life.

  • Values
    • Your job satisfaction depends on how well your career choice aligns with your values.

  • Personality
    • Personality preferences determine how you respond to the outside world, take in information, make decisions, and structure your environments.

  • Interests
    • Your interests determine whether you’re bored or engaged by your surroundings.

Values

Your values shape your thoughts, influence your worldview, and help you decide what actions to take. Your career coach will guide you through the Life Values Inventory and other activities, so you can identify your values. 

  • What's important to you?
  • What issues and causes do you care about?
  • How do you spend extra time and/or money?

Interests

The secret to finding a fulfilling career lies in identifying the things you already like to do—in other words, your interests. Your career coach will help you understand your interests by guiding you through the Strong Interest Inventory®.

  • What topics could you talk endlessly about?
  • What do you do when you have free time?
  • What do you want to learn more about?

Personality

By exploring your personality, you will learn more about how you prefer to derive your energy, process new information, make decisions, and which environments are best suited for you.

  • At the end of a long day, would you rather go out with a big group of friends or stay home and watch Netflix? Knowing whether you're an extrovert or an introvert can help you find the type of work environment that's right for you.
  • Do you make decisions with your head or your heart?
