Take career assessments

The more you know about yourself, the better.

While assessments cannot tell you what to do, they can help you learn more about your interests, strengths and personality. That information can help you put the pieces together and align your preferences with a complementary career path. Assessments open up new options for further exploration. If two or three assessments give you similar results, then you are on the right track.

Some assessments you can take on your own; others you can take if you contact us at 410.837.5440 to make arrangements.

  • Strong Interest Inventory

    Whether you are exploring careers or considering a job change, the Strong Interest Inventory® provides valid, powerful and up-to-date information to help you make informed decisions. The Strong's items measure your interest in a broad range of occupations, work activities, leisure activities and school subjects. Your pattern of responses is compared to the patterns of responses of people in various occupations with the idea that if you share the interests of people who are happily employed in that job, you are likely to find that job satisfying.

  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

    The MBTI provides you with information about your preferred methods for taking in information, interacting with people, making decisions and planning your life. This self-knowledge enables you to better assess work preferences and styles.

  • Values-Driven Work Card Sort

    When you understand your values, you are more likely to choose career pathways that express them. The Values-Driven Work Card Sort helps you assess your work values in four areas: intrinsic values, work environment, work content and work relationships.
