Career Assessments

Please note: Some assessments may require you to create a profile or enter your email address to receive results.

Holland Code

The Holland Code test results will identify your primary and secondary interests and recommend multiple careers that would allow you to satisfy these most essential needs. There are six broad occupational themes that match your interests and preferences: Realistic/Building, Investigative/Thinking, Artistic/Creating, Social/Helping, Enterprising/Persuading, and Conventional/Organizing. Using the Holland Codes can help you find the happiness and success that comes from working in a career that best matches your personality category.

Four Temperaments

A temperament is best described as your innate, natural reaction to people, situations, and ideas. Temperaments are our starting point for dealing with things and understanding our way of just being in the world. The Four Temperaments are Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholic, and Phlegmatic. You often have a primary and a secondary temperament, which can both help you identify careers in which you’ll thrive. 

Myers Briggs

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used assessment for personality. The MBTI identifies and describes your strengths and unique preferences, and helps you answer these questions: “How does my personality inform my choice of work environment?” and “What careers are popular among people with my personality type?”

Big Five

The Big Five model of personality is widely considered to be the most scientifically valid way to describe personality differences and is the basis of most current personality research. It was designed to gain insight into a person’s beliefs, traits, and motivating factors. Sometimes referred to as the OCEAN test, this assessment scores you on a scale for each of the following traits: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. 

MAPP

The MAPP test has helped people find a vocation where they can fully use their unique aptitudes and talents. It will provide profound insights into your personality, preferences, and capabilities, especially within a professional setting. Additionally, it will show your motivational drivers and your career themes. Helpful to college students discerning their future or seasoned professionals looking for a job change. 

Work Values Matcher

The Work Values Matcher helps you learn about the workplace values that are important to you. The method of identifying your work values is a card sort: you read and consider 20 statements about your work preferences then rank them in order of importance. Your results will show how your preferences relate to six core work values. You’ll also see a list of careers that might be a good fit for your work values, and learn how to research job opportunities and employers to find the right workplace for your individual values.

Skills Matcher

The Skills Matcher helps you identify careers that match your skills. You answer 40 questions to rate your level in a range of skills. Then you see a list of careers that are good matches for your unique set of skills. From there, you can explore the careers on your list of matches. You can learn about average pay, typical education, and the outlook (new job opportunities expected) for jobs in that field.

DISC

The DISC assessment unearths your core motivation, and smartly contextualizes it within the scope of your possible career choices. DISC theory is a personal development framework that can help you understand what drives you and others, especially in a workplace environment. DISC is an acronym for four basic behavior styles: Drive, Influence, Support, and Clarity. The DISC assessment is a powerful tool that can help you find your ideal career, team up with the right people, and improve communication and productivity in the workplace.
